Harrison Barnes injury: Warriors rookie leaves after scary fall

Barnes has been a star for Golden State against the Spurs, scoring 51 points in his last two games.


Update: Barnes started the second half and played the entire third quarter for Golden State before exiting the game indefinitely at the third quarter due to headaches.

Golden State Warriors rookie forward Harrison Barnes was injured during Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinals, landing on his hip while attempting to block Boris Diaw's shot attempt late in the second quarter.

Barnes remained down on the floor in serious pain before being helped off by the training staff and teammates. He immediately headed back to the locker room with a limp and a bandage near his head. As seen in the GIF below, Barnes hit the floor hard, sending Oracle Arena into silence.


Barnes has been a revelation for Golden State throughout the series, averaging 19 points and eight rebounds a game. At the half, Barnes had eight points for the Warriors. If he's unable to play in the second half, Stephen Curry and the rest of his teammates will really have to pick up the slack as they aim to stave off elimination and force Game 7.
