Found January 06, 2014 on Pro Sports Daily:
As of this writing, the latest news surrounding Ryan Anderson's condition is that he remained in Boston Saturday to undergo further testing. As the Pelicans prepared to play the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night, Anderson remained hospitalized, undergoing a series of tests to determine the severity of Anderson's ailment, which originally was diagnosed as a cervical stinger. Obviously this type of injury isn't the run-of-the-mill bone bruise or sprained ankle. A standard X-ray and/or MRI may not be enough to gauge severity. Consequently, several electrodiagnostic studies might be taken and likely include an electromyography (EMG) and a nerve conduction study (NCS). In essence, these tests help doctors make a diagnosis by looking for discrepancies of electrical signals of affected nerves and muscles.
