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.

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.
