Via the Charlotte Observer, rookie forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has been released from a Houston hospital and was cleared to fly Sunday, only a day after his concussion during the Bobcats' game against the Rockets.
Kidd-Gilchrist had been knocked unconscious during a fast break in a collision with teammate Jeffery Taylor. Fears of a neck injury or brain damage lingered as he lay motionless on the court for about five minutes before medical staff wheeled him off on a stretcher.
He was immediately taken to a local hospital in Houston where he was diagnosed with a concussion. Further medical tests showed no neck or further brain damage.
Now MKG must fulfill the NBA's requirement of their concussion policy before stepping back onto the court.
