Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol accidentally kneed Oklahoma City Thunder forward Nick Collison in the groin during Wednesday night's NBA game at the FedEx Forum.
Gasol had his knee out in front of him as he was attempting a jump shot near the basket, and Collison jumped in the air to block the shot. Collison was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
To add insult to injury, the Grizzlies beat the Thunder in overtime 90-89.
