Anderson, 53, wrote on Instagram that he went for treatment after a stunt on the set went wrong.

The movie set is reportedly in Cape Town, South Africa, according to the Los Angeles Times.

I spent the night in the emergency room. Movie set fight gone wrong. Me against two goons and a chair! Guess who didn’t win! Who needs a stuntman? Me that’s who,” Anderson wrote on Instagram.

“I’m not as young as I used to be! CT scan and X-rays showed nothing fractured or broken in my back just a deep contusion. That chair will never be the same though!”

“Anthony Anderson you are not made of rubber. I’m so glad you are ok,” his“Black-ish” costar Tracee Ellis Ross said in a comment of his post, according to KTLA.

A spokesperson for Anderson told the Times that the actor was back to work and “is fine.”

Later Thursday, Anderson posted a photo of the chair, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“It sucker punched me in the kidneys and back with no mercy! When I got on set today it was grinning at me,” Anderson said on Instagram, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Last month, Anderson hosted the Emmy Awards and is currently filming a movie called “G20,” according to People magazine. “G20″ also stars Viola Davis, Clark Gregg, Antony Starr and Marsai Martin.
