The Mavs head coach seems fine after being released from the hospital yesterday. From the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: “Barely two hours after fainting at practice and being taken to Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was back doing what he loves — managing a situation and calming people down. This time, he wasn’t easing concerns about his team, but about himself. ‘I’m fine,’ Carlisle said via text message Friday afternoon. A serious situation seemed to be a little less scary as Carlisle — who hit the deck at the team’s practice court at American Airlines Center — rested comfortably at the hospital, then was released.”
