Chris Kaman’s frustration over being sidelined since Jan. 28 with a concussion caused him to criticize the NBA’s “concussion protocol crap’’ on Tuesday as he continues to undergo tests that might allow him to return to the team’s rotation no sooner than this weekend.

“It’s the stupidest test ever,’’ the Dallas Mavericks center said. “For so many years in the NBA, they never had to do that stuff and now they come up with all that. It’s not cool, but it is cool, I guess. It keeps people safe. I just try to do the right things and wait until I can pass the test.”

Kaman said he is still experiencing headaches as a result of bumping his head in practice nine days ago. And so “it’s not cool but it’s cool’’ because the tests – which will continue on Wednesday – are done for the players’ benefit.

“I’d rather be playing, but at the same time I understand there’s a proper way to do things medically to keep people safe,’’ Kaman said. “Hopefully, it’ll progress. I’ll take that test, pass it and hopefully be able to play sooner or later. I’m tired of sitting around.’’
