The Golden State Warriors lost one of their forwards to injury during Saturday’s defeat to the Boston Celtics.

Juan Toscano-Anderson suffered a concussion and laceration when he dove for a loose ball midway through the fourth quarter.

The 28-year-old kept the ball inbounds and wound up jumping over the scorer’s table and falling awkwardly. He left the game and didn’t return. The Dubs released a statement following the game saying Toscano-Anderson is entering the NBA’s concussion protocol.

Toscano-Anderson has been a source of energy for the Warriors all season. He’s earned the trust of head coach Steve Kerr and has been playing regular minutes. Toscano-Anderson is averaging 5.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists this season. He’s averaging 18.2 minutes per game.

Golden State is already without Kelly Oubre Jr. and Eric Paschall, while rookie James Wiseman will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury.

The Warriors continue their five-game road trip with a matchup against the Eastern Conference-leading Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.
