News: Thompson has been diagnosed with a concussion, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Confusion has surrounded the situation since Thompson took an inadvertent knee to the head courtesy of Houston's Trevor Ariza in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's Game 5. Thompson, who suffered a laceration near his ear, was taken to the locker room for stitches, but he returned later in the fourth quarter, finishing with 20 points in 22 minutes. After the game, Thompson's father told a radio station that his son vomited on the way home, but reports Thursday insisted that team doctors had not diagnosed a concussion. One day later, the Warriors have issued a statement indicating that Thompson will not return to on-court activities until he's cleared by league concussion protocol. With six days before the Finals begin Thursday night, Thompson's availability for Game 1 likely will not be impacted.
News: Thompson has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not practice until he is symptom free. The Warriors announced the diagnosis Friday after Thompson went through neurological tests earlier in the day. Thompson was kneed in the head by Houston's Trevor Ariza in the fourth quarter of Golden State's Western Conference finals clinching win Wednesday night.
Impact: Thompson will be evaluated and will not be allowed back on the court until he clears the NBA concussion protocol guidelines. Thompson was initially cleared to return to the game by team doctors. He ended up not playing and started developing symptoms after the game.
