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:

Sam Amick confirms that the coach will return to his duties “in the next week.” Elston Turner will coach Tuesday night in New Orleans, and until Joerger returns.

See the video of the incident, and the tweets surrounding it, below.
