GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — An NBA G League player for the Grand Rapids Drive, Zeke Upshaw, collapsed on the court near the end of a game with the Long Island Nets and was rushed to a hospital.
Sarah Jbara, a spokeswoman for the team, tells mlive.com that Upshaw tumbled to the floor Saturday night with about 50 seconds remaining in the game. He was taken off the court on a stretcher. Details of his condition are not known, but reports out of the area are concerning.
The 26-year-old Upshaw scored 11 points to help the Drive earn a playoff spot with the 101-99 victory in the regular-season finale.
Upshaw is in his second season with the Drive. From Chicago, the 6-foot-6 swingman played three seasons at Illinois State and finished his college career with a year at Hofstra.
