After suffering three concussions in less than a month last season,
Brian Scalabrine wants to play it safe. That’s why he chose not to play
at all this summer.
“I didn’t play any basketball,” Scalabrine told WEEI.com last week
at the USI Shamrock Classic. “I didn’t want to risk getting a
concussion in that environment. So I just didn’t play any basketball
and then I’ve been playing since I got back here.”
“We’re just going to take it day by day and see what happens,” he said.
“The only time you’re really going to know is until you take a blow.
It’s going to happen one time or another, just how I respond to it is
going to be key.”
Here's hoping Scal stays healthy this season. He may be the butt of a lot of jokes, but there's nothing funny about head injuries.
