Basketball players aren’t the only athletes on the court in an arena during NBA games. Dance teams also provide entertainment during the games mixing dance skills and eye candy to keep the crow hyped during timeouts and lulls in the game. An Atlanta Hawks cheerleader was injured and had to leave the arena via stretcher during Monday night’s Hawks game at Philips Arena. The cheerleader fell during a routine and hit her head on the court.
According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Cheerleader Kristen, whose last name was not released, was taken by paramedics to Atlanta Medical Center. She was released Monday night following examination by physicians, according to the team.

An Atlanta Hawks cheerleader bit the dust, hard, during the intermission between the third and fourth quarter of Monday night’s Hawks vs Mavericks game. She was carted off the court and taken to the Atlanta Medical Center where she was “receiving treatment,” according to Deadspin. What a face smasher!
Poor girl, I hope she is ok.
Looks like she just hit a wet spot on the floor and lost her balance. She hit her head pretty hard on the floor. Hopefully, they just carted her off as a precaution.
