Injury Report - Goodwin suffers concussion

Bristol Flyers can reveal Rohndell Goodwin suffered a concussion last weekend and is expected to be out of action for the next two weeks.

Goodwin was diagnosed by the club’s therapist, Craig Barden, where it was concluded that he would need to miss the next two games, to allow him to fully recover before stepping back on the court.

The American guard has made nine appearances for the Flyers so far this season, averaging 14.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

"Unfortunately Rohndell took a knee to his head when falling in a game last weekend," Barden told bristolflyers.co.uk.

"He developed some mild symptoms of concussion and as such we have entered him into the concussion protocol set by Basketball England.

"The protocol consists of two weeks full physical rest before exposing him to a gradual increase in exercise intensity and duration over a five day period. A such, the minimum time the protocol can be completed in is 19 days."

Goodwin is set to miss tonight’s game against the Leicester Riders and next weekend’s South West derby away to the Plymouth Raiders in the opening round of the BBL Trophy.

Provided he passes the protocol in time, Goodwin should be back on court on the Sunday, December 17th for the BBL league game against the Raiders.

Limited tickets for tonight's clash with Leicester Riders are still available to buy online until 2pm today.
