The All-Star Break is over, and the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in action taking on the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. Cavs guard Dion Weiters went up for a nasty dunk and injured his knee on his way down. You can see in the replay below that it looked like he hyperextended his knee on the step following the dunk.

He then bravely hobbled up court trying to get back to play defense and walked off under his own power.

From Rotoworld:

Dion Waiters came down awkwardly after a dunk and either hurt his knee or hamstring on the landing in the first half of Tuesday’s game.

He was able to walk it off and left the court laughing with teammates so we’re guessing he’s OK. We’ll let you know if he doesn’t return to the game.
