DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey was "doing well" and was released from the hospital Saturday afternoon following his collapse on the bench Friday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
All tests done at the Cleveland Clinic came back normal, the team said. He was returning to Detroit and will undergo further tests.
"He's doing well," Pistons strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander told The Associated Press on Saturday morning.
Stuckey spent the night at the hospital for observation while cardiologists checked him out. He was conscious and breathing on his own as he was taken to the hospital after collapsing into Kander's arms on the bench during the third quarter.
He was wheeled off the court on a stretcher and the medical staff put an oxygen mask on his face before he was put into an ambulance.
Stuckey missed two games in 2008 after feeling dizzy and lightheaded during a game.
In that game, Stuckey squatted with discomfort in the final seconds of the second quarter, stood up with his hands on his knees and later patted his chest rapidly while talking to Kander.
"It was more dramatic this time because it was on TV," Kander said. "I think he's going to be OK. When we talked last night, he sounded normal."
