COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -A member of the Cleveland Cavaliers' dance squad was taken off the court on a stretcher after landing on the side of his face while attempting a stunt during a preseason game against the Washington Wizards.
Following the injury Friday night, members of both teams gathered near the scorers table and bowed their heads. The crowd was silent.
