Washington Bullets center Pervis Ellison survived a car accident near his Maryland home Monday evening without any discernible injuries and could play against the New Jersey Nets at the Meadowlands on Friday night.
Ellison, suffering from a headache and wearing a soft neck brace as the only reminders of his mishap en route to the Capital Centre for the game with the San Antonio Spurs, underwent therapy yesterday at the Bullets' Bowie State practice facility. He will be examined by team physician Richard Grossman today for any complications.
"I spoke to Pervis today [yesterday], and he says he is fine," said coach Wes Unseld. "But we'll still have to see whether he's ready to play Friday."
