Lance Stephenson Injury Update: Pacers Guard Gets X-Rays, Concussion Test After Receiving Elbow

In the waning moments of Game 5 against the Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson received an elbow to the throat from Dexter Pittman, sending him to the floor. Stephenson was evaluated after the game for a concussion and received X-rays, according to Alex Kennedy of Hoops World:

Stephenson landed awkwardly after the elbow sent him up into the air. As he came back down, he was able to extend his left arm out for support, but the force of that impact certainly could have led to a broken collarbone.

Pittman, who winked in reaction to the event, is likely to receive a significant suspension as a result of his actions.
