In the 63-62 loss of a basketball game that became a wrestling match thank to some very inept referees, Buffaloes freshman forward, Josh Scott, exited the game after an elbow to the head left him with concussion-like symtoms. Tad Boyle provided an update on his status on Monday.

"We don't really know anything more (Monday) than we did after the game, but he's going to be fine," Boyle said. "He's working with the trainers and will be back as soon as possible. I don't have a timeline on that; I don't know if it's tomorrow or the next day or the day after. I'd say he's day-to-day."

CU plays Utah on Thursday (8:05 p.m., Pac-12 Network) at the Coors Events Center. The Utes defeated the Buffaloes 58-55 on Feb. 2 in Salt Lake City.

The 6-10, 215-pound Scott was injured in the second half of Saturday's 63-62 overtime loss to the Sun Devils. About four minutes into the half, Scott became entangled under the basket with ASU's 7-2, 250-pound Jordan Bachysnski and received an elbow to the head. Scott was taken to the CU locker room and did not return to the game.

With only Utah at home this week, the time is there for Scott to get the rest he needs, but his presence would be missed against Utes big man Jason Washburn.
