Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry left Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals in the second quarter after a scary fall left him on the ground for several minutes before he was able to get up and walk to the locker room:
The fact that he was able to walk back to the locker room under his own power was a great sign, and he underwent tests to see if there was anything wrong. Here’s the official diagnosis for now:
Warriors say Curry has a head contusion, return for tonight is questionable. Shoulder is fine.

There will likely be other tests done to make sure Curry doesn’t have a concussion. Warriors general manager Bob Myers commented on the injury:
Bob Myers: "He should be all right."

While listed as questionable, I’d guess there’s little chance Curry returns to the game. Golden State has a 3-0 series lead and head injuries are no joke, so it’s best to play it safe. Hopefully Curry is okay, because the last thing we need is another injury to a star player.
The Warriors trail the Houston Rockets at halftime, 69-59.
UPDATE: Almost miraculously, Curry returned to the game in the third quarter after passing concussion protocol. I guessed wrong.
