Arsalan Kazemi Injury: Oregon Ducks forward leaves game after elbow to the head

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

Kazemi was injured late in the first half of Oregon's game with Nevada after taking an elbow to the head from teammate Carlos Emory.

UPDATE: Kazemi will not return and is suffering from concussion-like symptoms.

Oregon Ducks senior forward Arsalan Kazemi left Oregon's game against Nevada with three minutes to go in the first half after taking an elbow to the head with about three minutes to go in the first half. Kazemi, a transfer from Rice, took an elbow from teammate Carlos Emory as both were going for a rebound. Kazemi was down on the court for several minutes, and appeared to be rubbing his temple. After getting up, he was taken immediately to the locker room. After such a blow, a concussion has to be the immediate concern.

Kazemi has been a big cog for the 10-2 Ducks, averaging 9.2 points and 10.4 rebounds per game since becoming eligible in Oregon's third game of the season. Kazemi had two points and four rebounds at the half of Oregon's game with Nevada. The Ducks hold a 25-14 halftime lead. It is unknown whether Kazemi will return for the second half.
