As it turns out, both John Edwards and John Collins were injured during the play. reports that Edwards dislocated his left ring finger after his hand collided with Collins’ cheekbone. Collins was evaluated for a possible concussion that was later confirmed to be a head contusion.

After the viral dunk, social media was set ablaze by people wanting a pair of Anthony Edwards’ shoes.
