NEW ORLEANS – The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that guard Frank Jackson sustained a concussion during the third quarter of last night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks and has been placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol.

Per the NBA’s Concussion Policy, Jackson must go through the return-to-participation process, which can begin no earlier than 24 hours from the time of injury.

The return-to-participation process includes a series of steps designed to ensure an athlete exhibits symptom free behavior before resuming full basketball activities. There is no timeframe to complete the process, as each injury and player is different and recovery time can vary in each case.
