There was a scary moment during Thursday night’s game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder, as LeBron James attempted to save the ball from going out of bounds in the fourth quarter and went tumbling into the first row at Quicken Loans Arena.
In the process, he barreled through Ellie Day (nee Harvey), the wife of PGA Tour superstar Jason Day. You can see the video of the scary moment above.
Medical staff immediately rushed to the side of Ellie, who is from Ohio and is a dedicated Cavaliers fan along with her husband. Her neck was stabilized and she was placed on a stretcher to be taken away from the court:
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst provides some updates:
Ellie became a well-known figure in the sports world this year, as she was by Jason’s side when he won the PGA Championship and catapulted to No. 2 in the world rankings with a transcendent season.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on her status as more becomes known.
