It's been nearly 48 hours since Patrick McCaw was taken to the UC Davis Medical Center for tests after falling hard on his back against the Kings.
Over the weekend, McCaw underwent a chest x-ray, a CT scan and an MRI. All the tests came back clean. He was officially diagnosed with a lumbar spine contusion and was released from the hospital on Sunday.
On Monday, McCaw offered his first public comments since the incident in which Vince Carter appeared to inadvertently nudge him as he went up for a layup. He sent out the following tweets that included a message for Carter, who was distraught as McCaw was being attended to by the medical staff on the court.
James 1:2-4 - "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything!" FAITH 🙏🏽— Patrick McCaw (@PMcCaw0) April 2, 2018
