“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.”http://greenstreet.weei.com/sports/boston/basketball/celtics/2009/09/21/scalabrine-plays-it-safe/ JR 9/21/2009 11:31:00 AM Tweet
While these injuries kept Scalabrine off the courts this summer, he won’t let them hold him back this season.
“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.”
