Suns' TJ Warren gets 5 stitches on head; listed day-to-day

Phoenix Suns forward TJ Warren will not be placed into concussion protocol after being re-examined by the team physican.

Warren suffered a head injury in the first half of Friday's preseason game against the Utah Jazz.

A fourth-year player, Warren, 24, received five stitches on his head.

The injury occurred when Warren was closing out on defense and collided with a 3-point shooter in the corner. Warren fell and hit his head on a cemented area away from the court. He was taken to the locker room and was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Warren recently signed a four-year, $50 million contract extension with the Suns.

He has missed portions of his three NBA seasons with injuries, including season-ending foot surgery in 2015-16 and a minor head injury last season.

The Jazz won Friday's home game 112-101.
