WNBA Star Injured in Team Celebration: VIDEO

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Nneka Ogwumike is gonna be okay, folks.

But the Los Angeles Sparks forward was injured this week when teammate Candace Parker gave her a violent bear hug in celebration of Ogwumike's big-time basket during a 90-88 victory over the Tulsa Shock.

Watch the incident now and take note: The Sparks and the Shock both apparently play in the WNBA. Research indicates this is a professional basketball league for women that has been around since 1997.

Take heed, though, Ogwumike. It could have been worse.

You could have been on the receiving end of a Bill Goldberg spear.
