Holy synovial hinge joint, Batman! Roy Hibbert’s bulbous elbow looks absolutely gnarly (photo)

Yeah, I’m not sure exactly what’s going on with Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert’s elbow, but hoo boy, it ain’t right.

Hibbert posted the rather disturbing photo to his Instagram account Wednesday night along with the message, “Elbow looking extra fat today. Bout to go do my pre game shooting. Doesn’t hurt. #focussed”

The extra “s” in “#focussed” must stand for “Sweet Fancy Moses!” Or something like that.

Apparently, this nightmare fuel bulbous elbow thing appears to be an ongoing issue for Hibbert. Just look at what he posted to Instagram five months ago:

Roy Hibbert and his disturbing elbow: Now working as a server at catered weddings, parties and Bar Mitzvahs.

It ultimately appears that his weird-looking elbow isn’t effecting his play on the court all that much. Hibbert is logging about 30 minutes a game while averaging 12.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.4 blocks while leading the Pacers to an NBA-best 17-2 record.

But still: Look at that thing. Look at it!
