Here is an injury update on Ron Artest from Sunday’s game.
O.C. Register: Ron Artest has been cleared to practice Monday, 10 days after suffering a concussion in a fall Christmas night. Now, someone needs to let him know.
Maybe it was the bump on the head, but Artest seemed clueless about his status before Sunday’s game against Dallas, saying he wasn’t sure when he would resume full practices or games. Artest participated in non-contact drills Saturday but took part in the team’s pre-game shoot around Sunday.
“I could play, I could have gave effort (in recent practices or games), but it probably wouldn’t be good,” Artest said. “I could play now, I feel great, but the brain, it’s like a computer (that’s) not rebooting no more. It could be over.”
Artest might not have known when he will practice with the team again, but Phil Jackson certainly did and he said definitely Monday.
