Oklahoma City Thunder Activate Their Catastrophic Injury Emergency Action Plan

Just like any other business, NBA teams must provide emergency action plans for all foreseeable emergencies. On January 8th, in a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, their catastrophic injury emergency action plan was activated. Andrew Wiggins makes an aggressive drive, and sends Nerlens Noel to the deck with a hard forearm. Watch the play:

 

 

 

At 0:58, you see members of the OKC training staff lift their closed fists into the air, which is a sign to activate their catastrophic injury emergency action plan. Equipment is brought out to stabilize Nerlens neck and back, and a stretcher is brought to remove him from the floor.

Every business, even NBA franchises, must provide emergency action plans for their employees. A great job by the OKC training staff, a dedicated group of professionals.
