Injury 

Late Kobe Bryant dislocated his finger during his last season playing for Los Angeles Lakers while getting a rebound after missing a three-pointer. Unfortunately, he slipped on the floor and landed on his finger. Bryant went on to the sidelines. However, in the split of a second, his finger was arranged back into its natural spot. 

A similar incident happened with Maldonado which reminded basketball fans of late Bryant and the fashion they both fixed their fingers. While playing a match for the Overtime Elite program he hurt his finger. Reportedly, they found that he dislocated his finger when they were playing in defense and his teammates tried to grab the ball from his hand.
