Rockets Staffer Called Out For What He Threw At Alperen Sengun

Rockets Staffer Called Out For What He Threw At Alperen Sengun

The Houston Rockets suffered a devastating blow on Sunday night when their star big man, Alperen Sengun, suffered a brutal injury.

With less than a minute to go in this weekend’s showdown between the Rockets and Sacramento Kings, Sengun fell awkwardly while challenging a Domantas Sabonis bucket and couldn’t get back up on his own.

Houston ended up wheeling him off in wheelchair and he covered his face while it was happening.

As Sengun was being removed from the court, eagle-eyed viewers at home couldn’t help but notice a Rockets staffer throw something at him:

Needless to say, that ill-timed towel throw earned a lot of reactions on social media:

Sengun’s development has been one of the highlights of the Rockets’ season thus far.

The 21-year-old is viewed by most as the future face of the franchise.

Seeing him go down with any sort of injury is a blow for not only Rockets fans, but the NBA as a whole.
