Paul George suffered a horrifying leg break during a Team USA basketball scrimmage Friday, and former UFC champ Anderson Silva has extended the NBA star his support.

Silva, who suffered a similar injury versus Chris Weidman in December, relayed to George via Instagram:

I had the same injury champ, I know what you are going trough right now, but just stay calm and strong, you’ll be back soon. #PrayForGeorge

Silva is scheduled to return to the Octagon on January 31st when he takes on Nick Diaz.

George is expected to miss the entire 2014-15 season for the Indiana Pacers as a result of his leg injury.
