McCaw (back) is out indefinitely and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
McCaw has missed the Warriors last four games after taking a scary fall against the Kings and being carted off the court. Fortunately he did not suffer any neurological damage, but a bone bruise to his spine is what is now causing the issue. It's unclear when exactly he'll return, but his four week hiatus means he'll miss the first round of the playoffs at a bare minimum and is likely to miss more.
McCaw (back) has officially been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Pacers.
McCaw will be missing a third straight game as a result of a lumbar spine contusion. He's set to be reevaluated at some point on Thursday, though it appears the Warriors are still going to rule him out for their contest later that evening before hearing word on how McCaw's progressed. It's not overly surprising, as the Warriors are essentially locked in to the No. 2 see in the Western Conference playoff race. Look for another update once the medical staff is done reevaluating him and as of now, McCaw's next shot ot play will be Saturday against the Pelicans.
McCaw, who's officially been diagnosed with a lumbar spine contusion, will be reevaluated Thursday.
McCaw underwent an X-ray, CT scan and an MRI over the last 24 hours, all of which have come back clean and indicated there's no structural or neural damage. As a result, McCaw is expected to be released from UC Davis Medical Center later Sunday and will then take a few days off before being reevaluated on Thursday. That officially rules him out for both Sunday's game against the Suns and Tuesday's matchup with the Thunder, though it wouldn't be surprising if he missed a handful more outings after that as well considering the Warriors will likely bring him along slowly. Look for another update Thursday after he's been reevaluated.
McCaw's MRI came back negative, but he remains without a timetable for a return, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
McCaw currently remains at UC Davis Medical Center after being stretchered off the floor during Saturday's win over the Kings, though the hope is for him to be released at some point later Sunday. With both an X-ray and MRI clearing McCaw of anything significant, it appears his stay on the sidelines could be shorter than initially feared. That said, it's safe to assume he'll sit out Sunday's game against the Suns and with the Warriors safely locked in to a playoff spot, they'll likely bring McCaw along slowly. Look for additional updates to be provided over the coming few days.
McCaw was stretchered to the locker room with his neck stabilized late in the third quarter of Saturday's 112-96 win over the Kings following a hard fall on the floor, the Associated Press reports.
The injury occurred when the Kings' Vince Carter appeared to unintentionally undercut McCaw on the latter's attempted dunk, resulting in the second-year wing lying on the ground for around 10 minutes before he was removed from the court. The Warriors announced after the contest that McCaw was transported to UC Davis Medical Center for further evaluation. Expect Golden State to provide an update on McCaw on Sunday, but it appears safe to rule him out for the Warriors' game later in the day against the Suns.
