During a 98-78 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center, Patrick Ewing of the New York Knicks falls awkwardly and lands on his wrist. The fall leads to Ewing severely injuring his right wrist, suffering a fracture, a dislocation, and torn ligaments that would cause him to miss the rest of the regular season. Patrick Ewing would return in the playoffs but was never quite the same player again.
