Stephen Curry Returns To Game After Suffering Head Injury In Western Conference Finals Against Rockets

HOUSTON (CBS) -- Warriors guard Stephen Curry was injured during the second quarter during the second quarter of Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, but later returned to the game.

On a fast break, Curry trailed down the court and jumped in the air to contest a shot from Rockets forward Trevor Ariza, who was pump-faking under the basket. Curry connected with Ariza's back and rolled over him, hitting his head on the court.

Team trainers came on to the court to evaluate him. He was able to walk off of the court with some assistance.

Curry suffered a head contusion from the fall, and his return for the game was questionable, but he returned to the court in the third quarter.

When he was injured at the 5:52 mark of the second quarter, Curry had scored 11 points.
