I guess I didn't have to blow the whistle. As I think back on it I think, in this case it was okay to blow it. A basket was just scored and there was no pressing going on so at that particular time it had no bearing on game action.

However, I would assess myself as one quick to blow a whistle when I see an injured player. Based on this situation and your comments I will think hard about it and maybe think twice next time before blowing the whistle for this type of injury. In this case there was time to watch him for a few seconds more and really see if he was going to need assistance or could keep on playing. Thanks for the input.
I very well could have blown the whistle, too.
Why? Because I was busy with the player and not officiating the action; I would want my partners to know that I was dealing with something else.
