Comcast SportsNet’s J. Michael gets hit in the head with a basketball before Wizards game

(Via @CSNWizards)

You might have missed this in all the excitement about the Wizards playing, and winning, a second-round NBA playoff game.

Just in case, here’s the video of Comcast SportsNet Wizards reporter J. Michael taking a basketball off the head during his pregame report.

Deadspin even made a Gif of the incident.

As you can see, his pain certainly appeared to be genuine.

He lived, though, and looked none the worse for wear by night’s end.
