Joe Harris will be out indefinitely, the Nets reported Saturday...
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Joe Harris has been diagnosed with a concussion as well as a sprained left shoulder stemming from a fall during last night's game at Utah. Per the NBA’s concussion policy, Harris will remain out until he is symptom free and complies with all NBA mandated return-to-play protocols. Status updates will be provided as appropriate.
A player in the concussion protocol program can’t return to the floor until the following:
- He is without concussion-related symptoms at rest.
- He has been evaluated by a physician.
- He has successfully completed the NBA return-to-participation exertion protocol.
- A team physician has discussed the return-to-participation process and decision with the Director of the NBA concussion program, Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher.
Ultimately, the decision as to when a player will return will be made by the team physician.
Harris was hurt in the first half and didn’t return to the game.
