Pokey x-rays negative, should be able to avoid surgery.

Docs will watch overnight swelling.

Captain Morgan on NESN: "Pokey will need a few weeks to recover"

Here we go again.

Theo on with Dale & Neumy on WEEI: “The thumb is doing much better than he thought it would. The swelling and the soreness has not risen to a level that he expected after yesterday. So that’s good news especially because we’re going to be treating this thing by the symptoms. It’s a sprain. It’s not a complete rupture of the ligament. Surgery is not indicated. So we’re really going to treat it with taping, maybe a partial splint and hopefully that’s tolerant. I’d imagine that late this weekend, maybe Sunday, he’ll try to take BP, and if that goes well he shouldn’t be too far away from playing but we have not placed him on the disabled list, that’s a pretty good indication that our medical staff thinks that we need to treat the symptoms.”
