Ohio State's Evan Turner took a nasty fall after a dunk attempt during the Buckeyes' game against Eastern Michigan.

He was taken to the Ohio State University Medical Center for X-rays of his lower back.

A team spokesman said Turner was able to walk on his own while leaving the arena.

The 6-foot-7 junior is averaging 20.6 points and 12.9 rebounds this year and already has two triple-double.

Update: The Associated Press reports that Turner broke a vertebrae and will miss eight weeks.

Any updates on Turner? A great talent!

Heard he's out 8 weeks

He should have gone pro last year. I wish I had!
