Enes Kanter Breaks Forearm Punching a Chair on Bench, Could Miss Months

Thursday night was rough for Philadelphia 76ers fans hoping to see Joel Embiid in the All-Star Game, but it was much worse for Enes Kanter and the OKC faithful.

Kanter was seen punching a chair in the second quarter of the Thunder's 109-98 win over the Dallas Mavericks. That didn't end real well for him.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan said after the game that X-rays showed a forearm break. The Thunder are expected to give a timetable for recovery today, but recovery from such an injury can typically take around 2 months.
