The New Zealand Breakers will assess injured forward Will
Hudson later this week in regards to his chances of playing
in Thursday night's game against Cairns.
The American suffered a knock to the head in the loss to the
Sydney Kings on Saturday night and did not train with the
Breakers physiotherapist Anousith Bouaaphone said every
precaution would be taken with Hudson.
"Will suffered a mild concussion on Saturday night and has
not trained today as a precaution," he said. "We will
continue to monitor him closely to gauge his progress.
"We won't make any decision about Thursday night's game at
Vector Arena against the Taipans until later in the week. As
always in situations such as this, the player's health and
wellbeing is first and foremost our priority."
Aside from Hudson, the team trained well today while
continuing their recovery from the game on Saturday night and
travel on Sunday.
Thursday's game, the Breakers' final home fixture of the
calendar year, will mark 200 appearances in a Breakers
uniform for club stalwart Dillon Boucher.
