What’s up with T.J. Warren’s head?

Nothing. Probably nothing.

Hey, Phoenix Suns fans. Here’s a likely minor thing for you to worry about on this lazy offseason Saturday.

There’s lots of documentation on social media of your Suns getting some work in, preparing for the 2018-19 campaign. That’s good. Because any Suns fans who values their time and money will require that this team compete for a playoff spot late in the season. I’m sure the team already has placed that goal upon themselves.

Anyway, here is some of that documentation, straight from the team’s Twitter account:

That’s T.J. Warren on the left side of your screen. He figures to factor heavily into these goals that we’ve all agreed on. You’ll notice he has a bandage above his right eye. That’s probably not a big deal, and it definitely wouldn’t be a big deal, unless we’re talking about a person with a history of head injuries, in which case it might be a big deal.

For Suns fans who are unfamiliar, Warren is actually quite familiar with such injuries. In 2016 T.J. missed almost a month due to a head injury. Last preseason he entered NBA’s concussion protocol after a collision that occurred against the Utah Jazz. Less than a month later, he bumped heads with Enes Kanter of the New York Knicks. He ended up having to come out of the game. He didn’t miss any time, but in certainly looked scary enough.

So if there’s a guy that can show up to practice with a bandage on his head and it causes concern, it’s T.J. Warren. Here’s hoping he can play a full season for the first time in his NBA career.
