Initially when you first get hurt or banged up, it's like panic mode for a little bit,» said Babcock after practice at MasterCard Centre. «And then you get up the next day and you feel a lot better than you expected and it's a good thing. Until he's checked out though [on Monday], this is just you and me talking.»
