According to this Mlive article (link below). I feel so bad for this kid. I'm not making a joke here, but could this be a Javid Best situation?
He has a concussion but don't start comparing him to Best. you don't have any reason to do so.
I think it is unlikely but there is a glimmer of hope he can play. I think we need him against IU. The 3 guard lineup was very effective in Bloomington and we need some perimeter speed to get back on D against IU.
Also, basketball is so much different than football. Impact to the head occurs much more infrequently. I would worry about Trice's ability to do damn near anything if he needed a year or more away from basketball. I would think at this point they are just going to tell him to start playing with his mask all the time, games, practices, etc.
I'm definitely not trying to make a mountain out of a molehill, but I am simply surprised by the amount of time its taking to recover from the concussion. I guess I think of it being something that might take a week, but I am not a doctor so I should probably just shut up about it.
I read in the paper today that Chris Kaman had just missed his 8th game for the Mavericks due to a concussion. He passed the test required by the NBA to be cleared to play, though he still suffered headaches, and will probably sit out a little longer.
With the compressed NBA schedule, I'm not sure exactly how long Kaman has been out, but it seems that no two concussions are alike, and you really never know when or if someone will be ready to go.
Hold on - until Izzo says he's out for IU - don't go jumping to any conclusions. This hack from mlive has no credibility. His media credential should be pulled for some of the garbage he has written since he joined mlive.

It seems weird that they would rule him out for a game in 4 days.
Check out this story about Brian Roberts. After his second concussion, it took him 13 months before he could play baseball again. He struggled with just basic day to day activities for months.
Second baseman Brian Roberts returned to play last week, 13 months after sustaining his second head injury.
They already ruled him out for a Tuesday game?
That's one of the scary things about concussions: you might be cleared within 24 hours, it might take months. It's different for every impact, and there's really no way of knowing exactly what damage there was. Honestly, I don't mind possibly losing a few games; the long-term mental health of this young man is WAY more important.
Trice wasn't ruled out... Nor was it said anyone said he would be out.
"With injured back-up point guard Travis Trice not traveling to Nebraska for Saturday's 8 p.m. game and EXPECTED to be out for Tuesday's 7 p.m. home showdown with No. 1 Indiana.."
So the injury is not expected to go away by then, but if it does he will play... which we already knew...
Damn. Get better soon Travis.
Not just because we need you in the lineup, but because being unable to play basketball for weeks as a result of a head injury is pretty fucking scary.
Can never be too careful with this head injury crap. Luckily Valentine has picked a perfect time to hit his stride or we'd be screwed.
TT also really looked like he was hitting on all cylinders vs IU as well though, hopefully we can get him back and playing like that by BTT time at least.
I've had 4 concussions, each one is different. I've been out anywhere from a week to almost a month, it really just depends on how your body responds. I wish Travis all the best, concussions are a pain in the ass to deal with
I'm scared of what I won't become. You're scared of what I will become. Become Legendary
Thank god that game is at home.
"RCMB: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainry." - some dude from MgoBlog
Do we know that?
He has been out so long I would think he might need at least a few practices before he plays in a game.
Trice is a great kid. I talked to him at the pep rally last year in PHX and he's just a really nice kid, polite, friendly, down to earth. I wish him the best.

Assuming he is healthy I would think so. I basically mean it's like if he is healthy and Izzo wants to play him he will play but if he is not better before the game then he wont. There is no added information than we already knew was my original point.
Izzo has said in the past that once a player gets over an injury or illness, it takes twice as much time as they missed to get back to the level that they were at before the injury/illness.
That's what he said when Raymar had walking pneumonia anyway. Injuries you probably bounce back sooner from, assuming you're at 100%. A concussion is kind of a mix of injury and illness, with indistinct symptoms and timetables.
Right, and he should have corrected Valentine for throwing a completely random word into this quote:
"You don't come into the games bring to make a lot happen."
Crosby missed damn near a whole season due to a concussion. Things are different now than they were a few years ago.
This is troubling to say the least. I don't recall any football players that had to deal with a concussion problem this significant.
That ranks right up there (down there?) with "All your base are belong to us."
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
Really hope he is able to come back for IU. My son got sacked from his blindside this season and suffered a concussion. He wanted to play the following week, but trainers said no. He only sat the one week though. I guess all concussions have very different outcomes. Look at Morneau from the Twins, or Crosby from the Pens. Both out like a year.
