Warren’s head smacked hard on the floor when his legs were knocked out from under him. He would return for a couple minutes in the second quarter, but was taken out quickly and evaluated for a concussion.
Luckily, results of testing were negative for a concussion.
Warren was tested again today, and once again was not placed in concussion protocol.
He is listed as day-to-day, and will reportedly be a game-time decision for Monday’s third preseason game. Frankly, the Suns will be extremely cautious with Warren. If he is held out for precautionary reasons, that’s a good thing.
