Concussions — They Are Not Just for Football, Hockey and Soccer Players

The NBA season is lurking around the corner. And so, too, are more concussion stories. Whether it is greater awareness of head injuries or a byproduct of bigger and stronger athletes, it doesn’t matter. They are happening.

Chicago Bulls Guard Kirk Hinrich was the latest to fall victim to a severe head injury, which came in the fourth quarter of Friday evening’s win over Indiana at the United Center.

A days later, Chicago coaches announced Hinrich would be out of the lineup for “probably a couple days,” while going through a series of tests, as required by the NBA.

Earlier last week, the Portland Trail Blazers announced that Nicolas Batum had been announced with a concussion after a collision with teammate Will Barton.
