How serious is Jason Allison's injury?

I have him in a keeper league and everyone's telling me they don't think he's ever going to play again... what's his status? All I can find is that he's got a concussion and is out indefinately.

Jason Allison is feeling better. Doctors had been misdiagnosing his injury. They had called it post concussion syndrome, when in fact he had had three whiplash episodes in the span of 10 days (or so) and it forced the seritonen levels in his brain (his brain's equilibrium) to be uneven or unbalanced (much like a "depressed" persons seritonen level).

Basically a specialist finally about a month ago prescribed a drug (I'm sure it's either Prozac or a similar drug) that will balance things out in his head. He's had fewer headaches and fewer vision problems (but he still has some vision problems).

Last week in an article in all the local papers, he said the prior week is the first time in 10 months where he's felt like himself pretty much the whole time.

The outlook is a bit better for him, but there is not time table still. In todays paper it talks about how he's been going at it a little too hard lately and he's going to scale back his skating sessions a bit.

That's the story as I know it on Allison.

The Silver lining is that the knee injury from the knee-on-knee contact with Andy Sutton back in October of last season has fully healed.

Thanks for the info Face Wash. It's good to hear some positives on him. With no timetable still, from what you've heard do you think there is still a chance he may play this season?

Well, there is optimism that maybe by January sometime, if he continues to not have headaches that he'll be able to play with some of his vision problems because apparently they're not as bad as they were previously.

But it's a "brain injury" so no one wants to guarantee anything. They started getting optimistic with Deadmarsh about 3 weeks ago... So much so that they brought him into practice to have some light contact with the teams regulars. Then two weeks ago he runs into the softest player on the Kings (maybe in the league - Stumpel) and hasn't skated since. And now behind closed doors management is starting to doubt Deadmarsh will ever play for the organization again, so they don't wanna say anything about Allison.

Management has already made some shaky promises to the fans for this season (mainly Tim Leiweke - team president), they realize they should just shut up and let things play out.

Bravo, Face Wash!

Just wanted to add the fact that Jason is very optimistic on returning "soon"... he said that could mean anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months. It's still uncertain, but his outlook on everything is very positive and that's very encouraging. The fact that he hasn't felt like himself for the past 10 months or so is scary and I'm glad he's feeling much better and more like himself everyday.

A setback like his latest is to be expected for someone trying to recover from these whiplash injuries he had. They are results from him pushing a little too hard. It's just that he was operating at 100% 2 days in a row and that kind of was over-doing it a little. If he had been going 80-90%, he'd be fine, according to him. The paper said that he hopes to join the team for full-team practices by the end of next week... whether that means with contact remains to be seen. It's just good to see that he's FINALLY getting better... a couple weeks ago, things weren't looking so bright. Now that they know how to correct the problem, things are looking better.

altho i wish for the best for jason, dont expect him back anytime soon, post concussion syndrome doesnt just go away. one or 2 days u will completly fine, then u cant walk ur so dizzy. theres no set date for a return. Andy Mcdonald of the ducks had the same thing. and it took him forever to get back. he missed the rest of the season, and didnt even start at the beginning of this one. so we might not even see jason back for the rest of the year, but hopefully we will.

This would make sense if it were PCS. It's not.

No problem... and thanks for the well wishes... Not all Ducks fans are as cordial to us Kings fans on this board. We all certainly appreciate it.

No prob, most of us duckfans arent that bad, just sometimes get caught up in the rivalry to much, but that happens with all rivaries from both teams. anyway, it really impresses me, how the kings continue to play as well as they have with the injuries this year. they deserve a for that. but man, does palffy get injured alot or what? the puck will probably find some way to deflect and hit him in the pressbox. anyway, dont really enjoy playing palffy and jason, but lets hope for a speedy recovery for both.

its good to see mcdonald back. he's an excellent player, and although i don't watch the ducks too often, you could see the difference with him in the lineup. the guy plays with a ton of intensity and never backs down - does he wear an A? he should.

I've always like Andy Mac as well. He was out for such a long time with that concussion that I was beginging to think his career may be over. I'm glad he's back.

Now if only he could play for a different team

His return to the lineup seems to have added a real spark to the Ducks, and with Mc Donald playing on his wing, Fedorov has started lighting it up.

What about the story yesterday in the LA Daily News yesterday? Supposedly said he had a setback with significant vision problems, and had to stop skating.

Anybody confirm this?

He was pushing himself too hard... he was operating at 100% and that was going overboard for him. He needed to take a step back for a bit and take a little break. He said that if he were going 80-90%, he probably would've been just fine. However, he's hopeful to start full-team practice by the end of next week according to the OC Register (local newpaper).

This type of setback shouldn't be a surprise. Of course, things won't go perfect... they almost never do. When you're dealing with an injury like this, you have to give it time and Jason is doing that right now by taking a few days off. He can take all the time he needs.
