When a player is clearly injured, play should stop immediately for their safety. In the event of an individual headshot, the struck player can potentially be given a 10 second window of safety on the court if they have been affected by getting hit. This window will always end prematurely if the player clearly resumes playing. The player is also struck at the same time as a headshot, the hit will count. Players that are removed from the game due to injury are not replaced, though girls removed in this manner still count towards the 31 ratio.
