New York Knicks forward Tim Thomas had to be helped off the court after falling hard on his back when he was flagrantly fouled by Nets center Jason Collins in the fourth quarter Saturday.
Thomas, driving to the basket, was hit hard across the body and in the face. He landed on his lower back and rolled over in pain with about seven minutes left in the opening game of the best-of-seven series.
Thomas, who had 12 points, walked off with assistance and went to the locker room. There was no immediate word on his condition.
