So in answer to How did Chris break his hand;
He swung his arm to knock a ball out the air before another guy caught it, BUT the other guy caught it first and so Chris smacked it full force, bending back his index finger and snapping the bone in his hand. This would be the cracking sound heard by everyone in the gym.
Thanks for thinking of us, and praying for us. It is pretty sucky to be without your right hand!
