Kings coach Dave Joerger leaves game after falling to one knee (VIDEO)


The Sacramento Kings experienced a scary moment on Sunday as the team took on the San Antonio Spurs.

During the first few minutes of the game, coach Dave Joerger had to leave thanks to what the team called “lightheadedness”. Video on the sideline showed Joerger clapping about a no-call during a Kings shot attempt, then quickly turning and falling to one knee.

Joerger was helped by his assistant coaches and had to leave the bench.

Joerger had apparently been seen in some discomfort before the game according to ESPN. Sacramento’s team trainer went with him to the locker room, and Joerger was then seen by San Antonio’s team doctor.

Here’s hoping it was just a dizzy spell and Joerger is okay.
