Phoenix Suns forward T.J. Warren in concussion protocol after head injury

NBA.com Staff

Phoenix Suns forward T.J. Warren, who recently signed a long-term extension with the team, suffered a head injury during the first half of Friday’s preseason game at Utah.

The fourth-year swingman was contesting a 3-pointer on defense when he collided with the shooter and careened into a cemented area away from the court. The collision with Warren’s head required five stitches and, per the team, necessitated his entry into the NBA concussion protocol.
