Scary moment in an NBA game Thursday night: LeBron James crashed into the wife of pro golfer Jason Day while chasing a loose ball, and she ended up leaving the arena on a stretcher, reports Cleveland.com. The good news is that Ellie Day was released from the hospital early Friday morning, reports ESPN.com, though details about any injuries weren't given. (Cleveland.com notes she "appeared to have hit her head on the floor" in the accident.)

Day, who was wearing a neck brace on the stretcher, was down for several minutes but reportedly alert the entire time. "She squeezed my hand, said she was fine," says James, whose stats list him at 6 feet 8 inches, 249 pounds. He also tweeted an apology and best wishes. Day gave birth to the couple's second child in November. (More LeBron James stories.)
