Following a collision whilst playing against the Denver Nuggets, forward Mike Muscala has been entered into the NBA’s concussion protocol, as confirmed by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

As stated in the press release “there is no predetermined timetable to complete the protocol, as each injury and player is different and recovery time can vary in each case”.

While no timetable has been set, it’s unlikely that Muscala will suit up for the Thunder on Wednesday, August 5th, to compete against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Muscala is averaging 4.5 points and 2.2 rebounds across the 43 regular season games he has competed in this season.
