Former Wyoming basketball star Josh Adams was involved in a serious car crash last weekend in Denver. The collision left Adams hospitalized with fractures to his C5 and C6 vertebrae.

Now Adams is asking for a little help.

A Go Fund Me page was created Thursday for Adams to assist him and his family with the medical expenses. As of Friday morning (roughly 21 hours since the page was set up), 263 people had combined to raise $37,165.

And there’s still time to give. (Here’s the link to the page.)

Adams, who went to high school at Chaparral in Parker, just finished off a stellar college career at Wyoming. As a senior, he averaged 24.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists and threw down some vicious dunks.

Adams played for the Denver Nuggets Summer League team, and in late July he signed a contract to play professionally for Avtodor Saratov of the Russian VTB United League.

The Denver Nuggets already contributed $5,000, and Lakers owner Jeanie Buss contributed $1,500.

Adams tweeted out his appreciation for those who’d already contributed Friday morning.
