Ellie Day suffers concussion in collision with LeBron James

Ellie Day, the wife of PGA star Jason Day, was released from a Cleveland-area hospital Friday morning after being kept overnight for observation. Day, sitting courtside at Thursday’s Cavaliers-Thunder game, was injured when LeBron James crashed into her while chasing a loose ball.

According to Jason Day’s agent, she was treated for concussion symptoms.

Martin also said that Day, an Ohio native, had no hard feelings over the play.

“He was just doing his job,” Martin quoted Day as saying. “Go Cavs.”

She and her husband live in the Cleveland area and regularly attend Cavaliers games. She gave birth to their second child, a daughter, last month.

The collision took place with the ball still in play, but James and several other Cavaliers went to check on Day at the next break in play. The game was delayed while she was taken out of the arena on a backboard, but she was able to tell James that she was OK.
