(USA Today) – One day after Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson took a Trevor Ariza knee to the head that later caused “concussion-like symptoms” and had him throwing up in the Oracle Arena locker room, all early indications are that he’s just fine.
Thompson, who left the game for good after the fourth-quarter injury in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets, underwent further testing on Thursday that led the team to deeming his injury a contusion. There is one last hurdle to clear, however, as Thompson is scheduled to see a neurologist on Friday morning before the final diagnosis is made.
“My understanding is that it was negative,” his agent, Bill Duffy of BDA Sports, told USA TODAY Sports regarding the tests. “There were no issues.”
Asked if Thompson had a concussion, Duffy said, “No.”
