PITTSBURGH (AP) - Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is feeling better despite a concussion that has sidelined him for six games, but doesn't know when he can resume practicing or playing.

Crosby's status for the All-Star game Jan. 30 in Raleigh, N.C., is uncertain, although he said Tuesday there is a "slight chance" he could be back for it.

Crosby, the NHL's leading scorer despite being out for nearly two weeks, is experiencing occasional headaches that are preventing him from returning. The Penguins have said Crosby will not take the ice again, even for practice, until he is symptom free.

Crosby was injured after absorbing hits to the head in successive games, Jan. 1 against Washington in the Winter Classic and Jan. 5 against Tampa Bay.
