The Cleveland Cavaliers faced a scare yesterday when the health of owner Dan Gilbert was jeopardized after being admitted into a hospital. According to Noah Finley and Kim Kozlowski of the Detroit News, Gilbert may have suffered a stroke but is now recovering back to full health.
Detroit business mogul Dan Gilbert was hospitalized early Sunday after suffering symptoms of a stroke.
He was admitted to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital early Sunday morning.
“He received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably,” said a statement issued by the Quicken Loans family of companies following inquiries from The News. “Our collective thoughts and prayers are with Dan for a speedy recovery.”
Details of his diagnosis and prognosis were not released; the family requested privacy.
Of course, along with being the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dan Gilbert was also heavily involved in real estate around the Detroit area. Gilbert is an incredibly successful businessman and has owned the Cavs since 2005.
In that span, Gilbert and the Cavs have endured some of the highest highs and lowest lows in the NBA. Of course, Gilbert and the Cavs were able to secure a title in 2016 thanks to hometown hero LeBron James but Cleveland has also endured their years of suffering. Hopefully, Gilbert is able to make a full recovery and we still see him involved with the Cavs ahead of next season.
