Scary moment Friday night as Rodney Stuckey of the Pistons appeared to suffer a seizure during a game against the Cavaliers.
Detroit’s Rodney Stuckey was wheeled off the court on a stretcher during the third quarter Friday and taking from the arena in an ambulance after he collapsed into a trainer’s arms on the bench during a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Stuckey walked off the court for a timeout showing no signs of illness. After a few moments in a chair, though, Stuckey slumped over.
Medical personnel rushed over to the Pistons’ bench with a stretcher. Play was halted for about 10 minutes as the medical staff worked on Stuckey, placed an oxygen mask on his face and wheeled him into an ambulance.
*UPDATE*: ESPN reports Stuckey was taken to the Cleveland Clinic, where he was conscious, breathing on his own and in stable condition. At the end of the game, won by the Cavs 99-92, players from both teams met at midcourt and said a prayer for Stuckey.
*UPDATE #2*: Pistons strength & conditioning coach Arnie Kander told the ASSOCIATED PRESS Saturday morning that Stuckey is doing well and that all tests have come back negative.
*UPDATE #3* (3/6/10 1:25 p.m.): Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports that Stuckey is being released from the Cleveland Clinic: “He passed a battery of tests. No heart issues.”
