Why are Anthony Davis' concussion tests taking so long?

Postby DrDC » Wed Nov 07, 2012 11:07 pm

J.J. Barea got his concussion on Sunday, I believe, and he immediately took two concussion tests and was cleared to play within a day.

What's the deal with Davis' tests? I haven't seen anything saying whether or not he's actually taken or failed any tests. All we know is that he's ruled out for today's game.

He must have failed some part of it. Didn't seem like a big deal at the time - especially with Monty William's recent comments. Hopefully he'll be back for FRI.

I heard he wasn't passing them. Not just the initial tests.

"I feel good,'' said Davis, the No. 1 overall pick in the June NBA draft. "I've been on a bike, shooting, running and jumping, just seeing how everything feels,'' Davis said. "Hopefully, I will get a chance to play tomorrow. I'm not sure what's going on yet.''

wouldnt be surprised if he sits one more game, but looks like he's close.

The New Orleans Hornets will have their rookie lottery picks, Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers, back in the starting lineup Friday night against the Charlotte Bobcats in New Orleans Arena.

How about they keep Rivers on the bench this time? Less friendly fire, and they'll be better to boot!

Lol, no kidding.

Austin River's elbow isn't shooter friendly nor teammate friendly. :-D
