Warriors C Bogut sustains concussion in season-opening win
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut has a concussion after taking an arm to the head in Tuesday night’s season-opening win against New Orleans.
Bogut had already been wearing a face mask for a broken nose when he sustained a cut above his right eye that required stitches. He left the defending NBA champions’ 111-95 win at the 7:07 mark of the third quarter and didn’t return.
The team says he was evaluated after the game and again Wednesday morning. He won’t return to the court until he is symptom-free and once he passes the NBA concussion protocol.
He was productive when on the floor against the Pelicans. Bogut made all six of his field-goal attempts for 12 points to go with five rebounds and five assists in nearly 19 minutes.
