Not the NBA Too!! (2012 NBA Concussion Update #1)


Due to the nature of the sport and fewer players overall concussions are not as frequent in the NBA, only 12 during the regular season last year.  However, they do occur and possibly more than is being reported.  What is bothersome with the first second concussion found during this season is the aggravating term “concussion-like symptoms”.

Jameer Nelson absorbed at least two hits to the head in the last game he played and is it only “concussion-like”.  If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…  You know the rest.

Here is the current list (1 2), as you find more send it our way;

  1. Andrew Bogut – MIL – 1/16/11
  2. Jameer Nelson – ORL – 1/27/11

Have to thank @neurodocdad for reminding me of my previous posting of Bogut.
