After a scary moment of falling to his knees on the court, Sacramento Kings head coach Dave Joerger is said to be in good health.
While arguing with a referee during Sunday’s away game against the San Antonio Spurs, Joerger fell to a knee on the court. He was taken out to the locker rooms, and the organization later posted this tweet:
Kings head coach Dave Joerger experienced a momentary episode of light headedness tonight during the first quarter at San Antonio. For precautionary reasons he will not return to the bench this evening.
