Shaun Livingston, a key member of the Los Angeles Clippers, suffered multiple torn ligaments in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the season.

Livingston dislocated his knee cap in a sickening scene during the first quarter of Monday's National Basketball Association victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.
Driving to the basket on a fast break, he collapsed to the floor after taking an awkward step, bringing a shocked silence over the home crowd.
     
Team doctor Steven Shimoyama popped the knee back into place on the court, and Livingston was removed taken to the hospital on a stretcher.

"It's obviously a big loss for us," Los Angeles coach Mike Dunleavy said. 

"He was playing well, but I think our guys saw it and got a little bit of a shockwave and at halftime heard what the results were.  It took a toll on us a little bit but our guys came back."
  
The Clippers received even worse news a day later, as an MRI revealed tears to Livingston's ACL, PCL, MCL and lateral meniscus. 

He will be sidelined eight to 12 months.
