Kenneth Faried suffers neck injury, taken to hospital
This was scary.
Denver’s Kenneth Faried suffered a neck injury in the scramble under the net during overtime of the Warriors eventual win over the Nuggets. You can see the play in the video above, Will Barton comes down on his with his arm, it was a fluke. After the game, Faried had to be taken out of the arena on a stretcher while wearing a neck brace.
Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports was in the arena and had more details.
