Hawks player has tooth knocked out during game

For Atlanta Hawks guard Dennis Schroder, basketball is the ultimate Tooth Fairy. Although at 22 years of age, he clearly didn’t want to lose a tooth, but that’s what happened during Monday night’s game against the Trail Blazers.

Schroder took a knee to the jaw and the blow knocked his tooth out. This looked painful.

In case you’re wondering, he scooped the tooth up off the court and put it in a sock for safe keeping.
