VIDEO: Ryan Anderson leaves court on stretcher after collision

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

In a pretty scary and weird scene during Friday night's game between the Boston Celtics and the New Orleans Pelicans, Ryan Anderson needed to leave the floor with a neck brace and on a stretcher after a collision with Gerald Wallace in the fourth quarter. While going for an inbound steal with around 11:02 left in the fourth quarter, Wallace accidentally crashed into the left side of Anderson's back.

Anderson was on the floor for several minutes before he was carted off on a stretcher. It looked like he had trouble moving his right leg for some time before eventually being able to move all of his extremities. He gave a wave to the crowd as they applauded him when he was being taken off the court. He was taken to a local hospital and has been diagnosed with a cervical stinger.
