On October 17, Beijing time, the 2020-21 CBA League officially kicked off, with the opening match of the Jiangsu Men's Basketball Team against the Qingdao Men's Basketball Team. Soon after the opening, Wu Guanxi, the core of the Jiangsu men's basketball team, was injured and left. The Qingdao men's basketball team seized the opportunity to frequently hit Jiangsu's interior. In the end, the Qingdao men's basketball team defeated Jiangsu 102-94 and won a good start for the new season. Although the Qingdao men's basketball team won the first game of the new season, they were also unhappy. Outside general Zhao Tailong was also injured in the game. When the first quarter of the game lasted less than 4 minutes, the Qingdao men's basketball team attacked and Zhang Chengyu took a mid-range shot from the right corner.
After changing defense, Wu Guanxi struggled to block. Without any physical contact, Wu Guanxi accidentally smashed his left ankle when he landed. Sitting on the ground seemed very painful, but the injury should not be a big problem, because there was no problem afterwards. With anyone's support, Wu Guanxi walked off the court by herself, but still had some discomfort with her left foot and limped away. After leaving the field, the team doctor urgently dealt with Wu Guanxi and wrapped a thick ice bag. This battle did not return to the arena again, but there should be no major problems. After a few days of rest, he would be fine.
After Wu Guanxi came off the court, Jiangsu's inside offensive and defensive ends were restrained, and they were always behind. The Qingdao men’s basketball team did not last long. In the 6th minute of the third quarter, the Jiangsu men’s basketball rookie Zheng Qilong broke through to the basket on the right side. Lin Wickham stood outside the circle and attempted to commit an offensive foul. When Lin Wickham fell to the ground, Zhao Tailong, who helped defend him, wanted to block Zheng Qilong after jumping, but he didn't expect to have physical contact with Lin Wickham who was going to the end. Zhao Tailong lost his balance in midair and patted his back heavily. On the floor, lying on the ground for a long time can not get up.
The medical staff quickly entered the arena, and after a simple questioning, Zhao Tailong was lifted up together on a stretcher and carried away from the arena. Zhao Tailong's fall is very likely to fall to the tail vertebrae. In the opening game of last season, Cong Mingchen, a male basketball player from Liaoning, also fell heavily on his back and spent almost a whole season in rehabilitation. However, judging from the height and results of Zhao Tailong’s fall, the problem should not be big and it will take a short time. Rest and recovery, of course, everything can be done by the official announcement of the Qingdao Men's Basketball Team. I hope that Zhao Tailong will be fine. In the opening game of the new season, two consecutive players suffered injuries. I hope that the players will stay away from injuries in future games.
