Warriors' Barnes gets stitches, leaves because of headaches

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State Warriors rookie forward Harrison Barnes left a playoff game against San Antonio on Thursday night because of headaches after a hard fall to the court.

Barnes fell hard to the court after leaping to contest a drive from Boris Diaw. After a few minutes on the ground, Barnes was led back to the locker room. Barnes got six stitches to close a cut above his right eye at halftime and returned to the court to a loud ovation just before the start of the third quarter.

He played the entire third quarter before leaving for the night. He missed all three shots he took in the third.

Barnes is averaging 19 points through the first five games of the series, including 51 points in the past two contests.
