Temporary Injury with only 5 players.

I had this happen over the weekend.

Team A has 6 players, one of whom has fouled out. A1 goes to the floor with an apparent injury and the game is stopped and the coach is beckoned. A1 is ready to participate after collecting his wits.

If A does not choose to use a timeout to keep A1 in the game, can they continue with 4? Since A1 is clearly able to continue does A have to take a timeout to keep him in the game to maintain 5 players on the court? Other thoughts?

I thought there was a case play on this but if there is, I'm missing it.

Confused In Connecticut ...

SITUATION 5: Team A is playing with five players, but has no remaining substitutes available when one of the players has an asthma attack. The coach is beckoned onto the floor. RULING: The player must leave the game unless a time-out is requested and granted to Team A with the player being ready to resume by the end of the time-out. The team may continue with fewer than five players if there are no substitutes available. An injured/ill player may return to the game after recovery. (3-3-5)

I thought the need to play with five players "trumped" the need to "sit a tick". Or is that only with six players, when a player on the court is injured and a bench player, the only eligible replacement, hasn't "sat a tick"?
