Report: Kidd-Gilchrist released from hospitalBy The Sports Xchange | The SportsXchange – Sun, Feb 3, 2013 8:10 PM EST
Charlotte Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was released from a Houston hospital Sunday after spending the night there due to a concussion, according to the Charlotte Observer. The timetable for Kidd-Gilchrist's return to action is uncertain, as he'll need to pass league protocols related to concussions. "I'm just relieved he's not in the hospital today -- that's the key point. He's young and he'll heal up nicely," Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap told the Observer after the team's Sunday practice. Kidd-Gilchrist, 19, was hurt with 10:42 left in the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against the Houston Rockets when he collided with teammate Jeffery Taylor. Kidd-Gilchrist lay motionless before being immobilized and subsequently transported via gurney. Kidd-Gilchrist, who was alert and had movement in all extremities before leaving the Toyota Center, underwent precautionary X-rays and a CT scan, all of which were negative for head and neck injuries aside from the concussion. The second overall pick in last year's NBA Draft out of Kentucky, Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 9.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1 block per game in his rookie season. The Bobcats (11-35) play the Heat in Miami on Monday, then the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Wednesday before returning home to face the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday.
