NFHS Case Play 3.3.6 Situation D

A5 is injured as the horn sounds to end the first quarter and the coach is beckoned by an official on to the court to attend to A5.

The intermission should begin when A5 is removed from the court. No substitute is required if A5 is ready to play to start the second quarter. When A5 is not ready, a substitute should report before the warning horn or a time-out may be requested by Team A to keep A5 in the game.
