McCaw also received a standing ovation as he was stretchered off the court. "I play this game because I love it and enjoy it and not for that, not to see young guys get hurt".

But good news followed as Patrick was later released on Sunday afternoon after an evaluation by specialistslitss. The 2016 second-round pick adds some athleticism to the Golden State backcourt and was slated for more minutes with Curry on the mend, but now he'll need time to recover.

After a scary fall in which Patrick McCaw lost feeling in his legs for a moment, MRI results on the Golden State Warriors guard's lower back returned structurally sound, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Immediately after the incident, Carter, who was assessed a flagrant foul, was seen grimacing in sympathy for McCaw.

Puigdemont, detained by German police at the border with Denmark, is now awaiting his extradition trial. A crowdfunding page set up to pay her legal costs has already raised 165,000 pounds ($232,600).

Soon after, Warriors players David West, Shaun Livingston and JaVale McGee went to the locker room to calm their emotions. It really wasn't until this morning that I felt good about the news.

And while Vince Carter certainly doesn't mean to do this, head coach Steve Kerr is understandably upset.

After the game, Warriors star forward Kevin Durant said he didn't believe Carter did anything dirty or intentional. "I know that was tough on Vince".

"I know Vince's spirit and his heart". "It looked like he was just caught in the middle of the play and wanted to move out of the way, but Pat was coming so fast". He's never been that type of guy. Dan Beyer didn't think the play was in any way malicious by Vince Carter, although he probably could've made a smarter basketball decision. He is averaging 4.0 points and 1.4 assists this season and will be a restricted free agent after the season.
