Cavs owner Gilbert released from hospital after stroke


Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert has been released from a Michigan hospital where he was recovering from a stroke he suffered last month.

The team issued a statement on Thursday with an update on Gilbert's health, confirming his release and that he is facing "intensive" in-patient rehabilitation as he continues his recovery.

"The Gilbert family is thankful for the tremendous outpouring of support they have received," Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner said in the release.

"Yesterday, Dan Gilbert was discharged from the hospital and will now continue focusing on his recovery at an in-patient rehabilitation centre. The entire family is incredibly grateful for the world-class care Dan received from the entire staff of Beaumont Hospital.

"Dan is looking forward to beginning an intensive rehabilitation programme and is eager to continue the progress he has made over the last several weeks."

Gilbert, 57, purchased the Cavs in 2005 and the team has made five NBA Finals appearances since.

Cleveland have the fifth and 26th picks in the first round of the NBA Draft, which takes place on Thursday night.
