Scott Suggs may be sidelined vs. Seton Hall with concussion

The Huskies could be without their senior wing on Saturday night.

The first couple of weeks for the Washington Huskies have not gone to plan. The team fell to Albany at home on Tuesday night and lost senior wing Scott Suggs to a concussion. As they continue preparing for the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament that will begin on Saturday, UW is unsure whether or not Suggs will be able to play.

According to this story in the Seattle Times, Suggs is feeling better and hopes to play this weekend. This being said, the training staff will get the final say in whether or not he'll be able to play against Seton Hall.

"He's kind of day-to-day in terms of a decision for this weekend," coach Lorenzo Romar said. "We'll have to wait and see." Suggs will need a battery of neurological tests and has to be symptom-free for 48 hours before returning to the court.

Before the Huskies left Thursday afternoon for their flight to the East Coast, Suggs was hopeful for a quick recovery.

"I'm doing a lot better today, but yesterday I was kind of tired," he said. "Kind of foggy, but a lot better today."

Suggs missed all of last season with a foot injury and redshirted. Despite only seeing a handful of minutes this season, Suggs has been one of UW's best scorers while averaging nearly eight points, two rebounds and two assists. For a team that's searching for it's identity on offense right now, having the 6'6 wing would go a long way towards winning on Saturday.
