No info available on the extent of the damage. If you did not see or hear the photos/video/audio, I recommend you do not. He did not need emergency surgery, which insofar as I can tell is a good thing.
It seems like a sure bet that he'll never play college ball again, and it is unknown if he'll ever play basketball ever again in any form. I know teams in Europe were very interested in him and I heard rumors that he was likely to explore some options this summer, but that obviously won't happen now.
