Brian Scalabrine took the Summer off from basketball due to the concussions he received last year. Here's hoping he comes into camp in shape, but with the additions of Sheed and Williams, and the return of KG, Scal won't be needed as much. That said, he really stepped up last year in the playoffs and should be commended for that.
“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.”
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.”

    I think he did the right thing by avoiding any contact for all these months. However, by reading his words I wouldn't say there is much rush (and therefore need) for him to contribute right away. These concussions are dangerous. I hope he can contribute this year too.
