Jericole Hellems was taken to the hospital in Winston-Salem on Saturday afternoon as a precaution for the injury he suffered late in NC State’s win over the Demon Deacons. Hellems was back in Raleigh by Sunday morning, per the team.

Hellems was treated for a possible concussion and back injury after enduring a rough collision with a couple of Wake players while attempting to grab a rebound. He was in obvious pain after one of those Wake players landed hard on him, and was taken off on a cart as a precaution.

NC State will be off all week for exams, so he’s got some extra time to recover if he needs it. But if he did suffer a concussion, there’s no telling what sort of timetable he may be looking at.
