In a game against the Charlotte Bobcats on February 26, 2007,  Shaun Livingston suffered a debilitating knee injury, dislocating his left kneecap after landing awkwardly following a missed layup, resulting in the left leg snapping laterally.

Shaun Livingston injured almost every part of his knee, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and  lateral meniscus, badly spraining his medical colateral ligament (MCL), and dislocating his patella and his tibio-fibular joint. 

Livingston was told by a medical professional at the hospital that there was a chance that his leg would have to be amputated. He required months of rehabilitation to be able to walk again.

“It was like a wooden leg. There was no explosion, no burst. It was just blah.”
