Jeff just mentioned on postgame that Josh has concussion.
I heard this, too! I love Josh, or Jiggy, as I love to call him. Capel said they missed him in the game and on the bench today. He brings energy, talks a lot, and acts kind of like TT does in the post. I hope it's nothing really bad, and he can get some rest and come back to play.
I guess from the contact that caused the cut on his face? Even the announcers were asking about a foul. I didn't see when it happened, and there was no replay, so I don't know if it was inadvertent contact.
Whatever the cause, I hope he's feeling better soon.
I have been an unabashed Josh fan since last year. Love the kid's potential, and the energy/fun he brings with him.
Recover quickly, Jiggy. You are an important part of the run we're about to make in March.
Eat Mor Jonny.
Josh's concussion will make medical history. It is the first non-contact concussion ever recorded. It must have been spontaneous, because if it had been caused by a blow to the head the referees surely would have called a foul!
Hope he's alright, and hope Thornton doesn't also have one. He took a helluva hit from Raines on that late, full-court screen.
Hope Tyler's OK. He did come back into the game after the time out so there were no immediate concussion signs!
Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!
Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!

Hmm K said Josh got "hit in the eye", had "blurred vision". Doesn't sound good, hope it doesn't affect him long-term.
It happened at 15:40, on VTs first possession after the TV timeout. Josh was covering Green on a switch. Green drove into the lane. As Green went up for his shot, he appeared to catch Josh on the chin with his left elbow. Then, on the way down, Green's right hand follow thru came down across Josh's face.
Looks to me like the concussion was from the elbow; the cut was from the hand swipe.
I could not tell either.i am inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.later on in the game when rivers got plowed out of bounds. i believe the same player helped him up with mp1.
