Just two minutes into the third quarter against the Knicks Saturday, Indiana’s T.J. Warren drove the lane, got up a shot, but then went to the ground in a tangled mess of players, including Domantas Sabonis. Warren stayed on the ground holding his head while the play continued on the other end of the court. Warren left the game.
A few minutes later, the Pacers announced Warren was done for the night.

After the game, Pacers coach Nate McMillan said that Warren was taken to the hospital for observation.

We have no update beyond that, nor do we know if Warren has been entered in the league’s concussion protocol.
Warren came over to the Pacers from the Suns and has had a quality season as a starter at the three, averaging 18.4 points per game. Warren being out likely means more run for Justin Holiday and Doug McDermott.
The Knicks defeated an ice-cold Pacers team 92-85 on the night.
