TORONTO - Daniel Winniks head hit the ice and he briefly lost consciousness. Before he was taken off on a stretcher last Thursday night, he was able to tell the training staff about the entire play that led to his fall.Winnik never felt numb and never had any pain in his neck. By the intermission, he was walking around the visiting locker-room at Pepsi Center in Denver and telling his Toronto Maple Leafs teammates he was OK.After being held out of two games over the weekend for precautionary reasons, Winnik skated by himself Monday, took part in Tuesdays practice and could be back in the lineup Wednesday against the Boston Bruins. He considers himself lucky to have come away from the incident unscathed.Usually you see plays like that and someone laying on the ice and you expect like a concussion or something, Winnik said. I was fully aware of what was going on. I remember the hit. Obviously just went out for a little bit. But I felt fine, I wasnt dizzy, didnt have a headache or anything.The medical staff held Winnik out of the rest of the Leafs 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche and then coach Randy Carlyle was told Winnik shouldnt play Saturday or Sunday.They provided us with a timetable in which they thought was best prescribed in this situation, so thats what you have to follow, Carlyle said. In the world of sports, the concussion issue is talked about in a bunch of different ways, and this to us was not something that we had any other way other than what the medical staff and the doctors prescribed.The 29-year-old forward seemed to be fitting in extremely well since signing a one-year deal with Toronto in the off-season. Winnik has a goal and six assists in his first 13 games and in the process forced his way further up the lineup than Carlyle expected.Still, Winnik didnt object to sitting out two games just to be safe.I completely agreed with the training staff on that, he said. As much as I wanted to play, I understand it. Its the best thing to do going forward. Why risk it, its silly to say, just for two games. I know its two important games, but down the road itll benefit me more.The Leafs won each game, beating the New York Rangers 5-4 and then the Ottawa Senators 5-3. Coming up Wednesday is a rematch with the rival Boston Bruins, who embarrassed the Leafs 4-1 at Air Canada Centre on Oct. 25.It was a lot of stupidity and guys will admit that, centre Nazem Kadri said of the teams performance that night against Boston. Just being in the wrong place at the wrong time and just kind of having a couple brain cramps here and there that end up in the back of your net.If Winnik plays, hes expected to be back on the second line alongside Kadri and right-winger David Clarkson. Thats where he skated Tuesday, giving the indication that he should be good to face Boston.Carlyle said doctors would make an assessment of Winniks condition after Wednesdays morning skate and then again after pre-game warm-ups.The possibility of Winnik returning so quickly seemed like a longshot last week.Its just one of those instances where you get lucky, defenceman Cody Franson said. That was a big scare for all of us. Any time you can get a guy back like that and where he looks OK, its a big relief for the group.Winnik was relieved almost right away. Other than an interference penalty, he didnt think former teammate Jan Hejda had any ill intent on the play, and the Colorado defenceman later reached out to make sure Winnik was fine.Fully aware of his surroundings, Winnik called it a rare scene for a hockey rink to be so silent. After watching the replay of himself going to the ice headfirst the next day, he could understand why.Its tough to see yourself laying on the ice like that, Winnik said.Notes: Winger David Booth, who has been out six weeks with a broken foot, skated with strength and conditioning coach Anthony Belza again Tuesday. Its unclear when he might rejoin the Leafs for practice, Carlyle said. ... The coach also said winger Joffrey Lupul is at least a week away from rejoining the team on the ice. Lupul recently had a cast removed from his broken right hand, but is having another smaller cast put on.———Follow @SWhyno on Twitter. Philadelphia Phillies Shirts .

The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. A year ago he used the Latin American swing to test his recovery from an injured left knee. Nadal seemed to move freely against Montanes and wore a large, blue elastic bandage on his lower back as a precaution. "The back, well, its bothering me a little," Nadal said. "Right now its not hurting my game, but Im serving a little more gently than Im used to doing." Nadal said he pushed his recovery "a little bit" to play in Rio, after pulling out of the tournament the week before in Buenos Aires. "I am here and very happy being here," he said. "When you get an injury in the final of a Grand Slam, and you stop (playing/practicing) for 2 1/2 weeks, the comeback is not easy." Asked if nagging injuries might force an early retirement, the 27-year-old joked a bit before getting serious. "I cant predict the future, but my intention is to play many years," he said. In the other key mens match, third-seeded Fabio Fognini reached the last eight beating Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-3.

Dolgopolov said he hadnt considered leaving the tournament to return to his Kyiv birthplace, where more than 100 people have died in anti-government protests this week. Government snipers killed at least 70 on Thursday. "Its sad. I cant do much, but just support," he said. "Whoever is right doesnt matter now when people are dying." Dolgopolov, who lives in the wealthy European enclave of Monte Carlo, said he was lucky to have the chance to make money playing tennis. "Obviously I would like the people in the (Ukraine) to feel better. If I could, I would change that," he said. On the womens side of the combined ATP-WTA event, fifth-seeded Kurumi Nara of Japan and Lourdes Dominguez Lino of Spain set up a quarterfinal matchup after second-round wins. Nara defeated Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany 6-0, 7-6 (3), and was in sight of her first WTA semifinals. Dominguez Lino beat Chanelle Scheepers of South Africa 2-6, 7-6 (7), 6-1. Nara said she likes the hot weather in Rio and is getting used to the clay. "Now I like the clay court," she said. "Last year, I didnt like it." Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania also made the last eight, as did Brazils Teliana Pereira. She is the first Brazilian woman in 23 years to crack the WTAs top 100. The last was Andrea Vieira. Brazils most famous womens player is Maria Bueno, who won seven Grand Slams singles titles, the last at the US Open in 1966. ' ' '
