Golden State Warriors second-year guard Patrick McCaw was taken off the court on a stretcher after being undercut inadvertently by Sacramento Kings forward Vince Carter. McCaw took an awkward, hard spill as a result of the contact and landed on what appeared to be his backside.
The Warriors announced late Saturday that a chest X-ray and CT scan came back clear and that McCaw will undergo an MRI. “I just hope he’s OK,” Carter said. “I play this game because I love it and enjoy it, not to see young guys get hurt. He has a bright future. I just hate to see it.”

Report: Jontay Porter Out for Season with Torn ACL, MCL
Missouri sophomore Jontay Porter will miss the entire upcoming season after tearing his ACL and MCL on Sunday, the school announced.
Porter suffered the injuries during a closed scrimmage against Southern Illinois.
He is the younger brother of Michael Porter Jr., the former top recruit who missed the majority of his lone season at Missouri last year before being drafted in the first round of the NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets in June.
Jontay Porter, a 6-foot-11 power forward, averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks last season and was expected to see a jump in production in 2018-19. He was named preseason second-team all-SEC last week.
