    I think this deserves it's own thread. Let's pray for a quick and full recovery for Shavon - basketball or no basketball.

    I got a headache trying to read the guidelines. Pretty much depends on the subjective symptoms and the doctor as far as I could tell. I'm guessing a minimum of two games missed, maybe more if he complains of any symptoms or has had prior concussions.

    if shields misses wednesday's game, will that be the first game anyone has missed due to injury?

     

    that's pretty amazing to go 3/4 of the season completely healthy.

     

    i know hammond/morrow were banged up, but i think they have been able to play in every game if needed.

     

    also kind of sad our record isn't better given we've been at full strength the whole season.

    How many games has he missed in his career let alone in this season? He's been a remarkably healthy young man. Wish and pray for a speedy recovery and NOT just so he can get back out on the floor again.

     

     

    He missed 5 games at the start of his freshman year.

    Is there a press conference today? Maybe he'll be at that

     

     

    Miles will have his pre-flight conference Tuesday afternoon. After listening to the Husker Sports show tonight, I'd suspect that Shavon probably won't even travel to Wisconsin.

     

    Agreed - didn't get the impression he would travel to Madison, even as a spectator - probably a smart decision so he can continue whatever treatment he's undergoing without interruption.

    The rest and recuperation at Momma Shields' discretion.

    I hope he's back soon, but this has been in the back of my mind since Saturday.  Certainly his health is the first consideration.  I'm glad the staff doesn't appear to be rushing things.
     

    Nobody knows for certain the severity of the injury, so with that in mind, is there a possibility Shields doesn’t return, period?

    “I don’t know,” Miles said. “I do not know.”

    I know it's just been 3 days. And I know with concussions nowadays, you get put into the protocol, and from there it's a wait a see type thing. But it's still a little disappointing that they literally know nothing or at least aren't sharing. And it's super discouraging that the possibility of Shavon not returning at all has been brought up even though nobody truly knows. I'm sure Shavon has been thrown into that brain research-athletics collaboration that UNL has going on. I don't know specifics but it's something about being able to track eye movement while monitoring brain activity. Obviously, everyone wants the very best for Shavon, but it would be my hope that the research doesn't get in the way of him returning in a safe and healthy manner and according to current timeframes for what's currently understood about concussions. In other words, I don't think it would, but hopefully the research doesn't delay his return.

    Just watched Miles' presser. Shavon isn't even going to class right now so I don't know how you come up with any sort of time table. Rosenthal asked him if he knew if Shavon was coming back this year. How can you answer that with anything but "I don't know?"

    Well, you can't and that's the discouraging part. I will be more encouraged when they are able to say something a little more upbeat even if there is no firm timetable like, 'he's coming along and we're gonna see where he is in a few days'.

    Given Shavon's post Nebraska basketball aspirations both in Professional Basketball, and in the professional field (doctor i believe, or at least some with heavy basis in research since his major is Biological Science), and given all the studies in degenerative brain diseases that come from concussion and even concussion like episodes, i'm fully pro Shavon take as much time as he needs to get back to full health, and to live a healthy life.

    I'd say be prepared to be discouraged for at least a month.

    Looks like the protocol is somewhat subjective, but to put things into perspective, David Ross missed two months as Red Sox catcher with concussion in 2013, and Brock Holt missed final month of the season in 2014.

    Don't know if this has been said in other threads, if so, my apologies.  Shavon's situation reminds me somewhat of when Hoppen went down in 1986.  Other guys stepped it up and we still made it to the NCAA Tourney for the first time ever.  I'm not predicting a spot in the Big Dance, but I can see players stepping up their games and the Huskers winning 4 or 5 of their remaining contests.  I can see them winning tonight!

    I hope Shavon hasn't played his last game as a Husker, as he is one of my all-time favorites, but if it's in his best interest to miss the rest of the season then that is what needs to be done.  In the end basketball is just a game and his personal health and safety is more important.

    I totally agree with this and thought of that the other day.  FYI, tonight's loss to Wisconsin actually follows the '86 scenario.  Right after losing Hoppen, we lost to a not-so-good K-State team at home before pulling it together and upsetting a good Mizzou team on the road.  Let's hope history repeats.

    Nebraska really needed the aggressiveness of Shields tonight in Madison. He's three or four inches taller than Webster, and could have finished a few of those drive-to-the-hoop finishes that Tai could not. I think Shavon not playing had an effect on the Huskers, hopefully they rally vs PSU. Win one for Vonny!!

    I really thought Benny would be wearing a big heart tonight (don't get me wrong... the kid has always had a huge heart) but he just had an average game.  I was thinking Benny might go off tonight.  

     

    Shields would have helped in possibly finishing a few, but with us getting no calls, I could of seen him settling for quite a few pull up jays as well.

    Understatement of the night...we need Shavon back...quickly.

     

    First off... as always, I'm wishing the best for Shavon and a full recovery.

     

    That said, even if he was healthy and playing in this game I don't see us pulling out a win. But his leadership and ability to make plays surly was missed in this one.
