Dillon Boucher in doubt for Wildcats rematch

6:44 pm on 15 February 2011

The veteran New Zealand Breakers forward Dylan Boucher says his head injury might mean he'll have to sit out Thursday night's Australian National Basketball League match against his old club, Perth.

Boucher needed eight stitches after falling and hitting his head on an opponent's knee during Friday night's home win over Melbourne.

He says he also has a mild concussion and is having trouble with bright lights, headaches and dizziness so he's not taking any risks, sitting out training in the hope he'll be right to help try to tame the Wildcats for the second time this season.

The Breakers lead the league having won 16 of their 19 games, the last six in a row, but their biggest loss was to the defending champions in Perth.
