Klay Thompson Cleared To Play In Game 1 Of NBA Finals After Concussion

Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson has been cleared to play in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, according to a report from ESPN.

Thompson took a knee to the head last week and was initially diagnosed as a contusion. He was later upgraded to having a concussion after he showed symptoms (like throwing up).

Apparently, the NBA’s concussion protocols are lax. Just one week later, a player is cleared to play? Hasn’t the league been paying attention to what has happened in the NFL?
