After being hospitalized, Dampier back with Mavs


Posted Nov 16 2009 8:18PM

MILWAUKEE (AP) - -- Mavericks center Erick Dampier is flying to Milwaukee to rejoin the team, a night after being hospitalized for an unspecified illness before Dallas' game against Detroit.

Dampier was taken to a Detroit-area hospital after warmups ahead of Sunday night's 95-90 victory over the Pistons.

The Mavericks did not release any information Monday about why Dampier needed to be taken to the hospital. Once in Milwaukee, the 13-year veteran was expected to stay at the airport and wait for the team charter instead of heading to the arena.

Coach Rick Carlisle was terse when pressed on the situation, saying, "I've given you all the details I'm going to give you. Symptom free."

Carlisle later called it "a very unusual situation, but he's doing well now."
