The Akron Beacon Journal reports:
Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey reportedly suffered a seizure after he walked off the court for a timeout with 2:30 remaining in the third quarter of Friday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.
Stuckey, 23, was taken from the bench on a stretcher and transported to the Cleveland Clinic, according to ESPN. The network reported that Stuckey’s eyes were closed and he was receiving oxygen as he left the court.
The AP reports:
Stuckey walked off the floor 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 12 minutes as the medical staff worked on Stuckey, placed an oxygen mask on his face and wheeled him into an ambulance.
Stuckey is reportedly conscious and breathing on his own in a nearby health clinic.
