Kyle Lowry was able to pull Ujiri away and onto the court for the celebrations, but it appears the Alameda County Sheriff's Office seems intent on pulling him back in.

The sheriff's office said the deputy was pushed and struck in the face as Ujiri shoved him to get onto the court following the win in Oakland.

"He has a serious concussion; a templar mandibular joint injury, which is a serious jaw injury", said Mastagni".

After reportedly reviewing footage of the altercation from the deputy's body camera and security cameras at Oracle Arena, Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern says he fully supports the deputy, according to Nielsen. "No options are off the table", said Mastagni. With the Raptors now in the midst of celebrating their first National Basketball Association championship in franchise history, Ujiri hasn't spoken on the matter yet, but expect this to continue for a bit. "Everybody from the top executives all the way down. know that you must wear credentials to get on the court", he said.

A spokesperson for the Raptors said: "The incident is being looked at, and we are co-operating with authorities. We look forward to resolving the situation". The footage from those cameras has not been released because it's part of the investigation, Nielsen reports.

A Warriors fan who witnessed the incident told The Associated Press that the sheriff's deputy didn't ask for any credentials before putting his hand on Ujiri's chest and pushing him.

He also said then that there was no conversation between the deputy and Ujiri.

Wiener said he recalled the detail "after thinking about it all weekend".

"This is a case about a credential or no credential, not a case about race", said Mastagni.
