yeh might find oil has gone up the bore so may be quite smokey for first few minutes but can see any bad effects other than some dented pride.

i'd only be concerned about physical damage.
if it 'looks' fine then i'd imagine it is fine.
i started a motor in a car that had been rolled (once it was back up properly obviously)
and it was fine, bit of smoke, but it cleared.
