Steven Adams dealing with ‘testicular contusion’ after Draymond Green kick
Draymond Green may not have been suspended for kicking Steven Adams in the groin during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, but the boot left a lasting impression on the Oklahoma City Thunder big man.
Prior to OKC’s blowout win in Game 4, Craig Sager reported that Adams is dealing with what sounds like a painful injury.

A contusion is basically a severe bruise. We’ve all dealt with bruises before. My guess would be that not many of us have dealt with testicular contusions, and those of us who haven’t feel very fortunate.
Whether you believe it was intentional or not, there’s no question Green’s kick (video here) looked like it hurt. He followed that up by tripping a player during Game 4 on Tuesday, so the Warriors forward obviously isn’t feeling much remorse.
Here’s hoping Adams’ — well, you know — starts feeling better real soon.
