Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkic suffered a horrifying injury Monday night in a win over the Brooklyn Nets.

Nurkic went to get an offensive rebound when he appeared to obliterate his leg. I’m not talking about some kind of minor scratch. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)

His leg just appeared to snap in half. You can watch the disgusting video below.

Like I said above, that is just straight up disgusting. I’m not sure how much worse it could get. You know an injury is bad whenever the cameras quickly zoom out and cut away, which is exactly what happened here.

What a gruesome way to go down for the Trail Blazers star. I have no idea when he’ll be playing again, but I can promise you that it won’t be anytime soon. (RELATED: Tom Izzo Goes Ballistic On Aaron Henry, Refuses To Apologize)

Injuries that involve snapping legs generally take a long time to recover from.

Prayers up for Nurkic. He’s going to need all the help he can get after that injury. My guess is that it’s going to be a very long time before we see him on the court again.

What a horrible way to end the season.
