Question Running without a BOV?

Curious, will running the car temporarily without a Blow Off Valve damage a turbocharger, or will it simply affect the spool-up between gear shifts, since the compressor has to spin up to speed again?

I need to know fairly urgently as I need to do a quick work-around and am wondering if it's safe to run BOV'less for a few days?
