Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was stretchered out of the arena Saturday after getting accidentally kneed in the back of the head by a teammate. The Bobcats rookie forward was down on the court for several minutes, but Houston beat writer Jonathan Feigen reported that the team stressed MKG was talking and moving.  Bobcats beat writer Rick Bonnell backed up that report, tweeting that Kidd-Gilchrist was moving his extremities and no decision had been made on whether MKG would stay overnight in a hospital or travel with the team to Miami, Bonnell wrote. MKG played 20 minutes, finishing with four points, five rebounds and a block. Kidd-Gilchrist has been down for six full minutes. Got hit in back of head. Will be wheeled off with neck supported. — Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) February 3, 2013 No updates yet on MKG, but Bobcats clear that he took a knee in back of his head and was talking, moving throughout 6 minutes on court. — Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) February 3, 2013 Mile Dunlap: MKG was talking and extremities were moving when he left in the ambulance. — Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) February 3, 2013 No decision yet whether MKG will spend the night in Houston hospital or travel with Bobcats to Miami tonight. — Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) February 3, 2013
