Tim Hardaway Jr. passes concussion tests, doing 'fine' after bump to head vs. Kansas State
NEW YORK -- Michigan junior guard Tim Hardaway Jr. was given concussion tests following the Wolverines' 71-57 win over Kansas State on Friday.
Thankfully for the Wolverines, though, Hardaway passed them.
"He's doing fine, the docs looked at him and he's doing really well," Michigan basketball athletic trainer John DoRosario told reporters after the game. "Obviously when somebody hits their head we're going to evaluate him and continue to evaluate him, but he's been doing fine.
"He passed all the concussion tests right now, we'll continue to evaluate him."
Hardaway was named the Most Outstanding Player of the NIT Season Tip-Off tournament Friday after scoring 23 points and grabbing 7 rebounds in the Wolverines' title-clinching win over Kansas State.
The injury in question came late in the second half when it appeared Hardaway took a knee to the head under the basket while going for a loose ball. He stayed on the floor several moments, holding his head, while being evaluated by team doctors.
Hardaway then left the court before returning to the bench late in the game, receiving a loud ovation from the crowd in the process.
He was not made available to the media following the game.
"He seemed fine when I talked with him," Michigan coach John Beilein said.
