Marquis Daniels Released From Hospital After Spinal Cord Injury

It looks like Marquis Daniels will ultimately be okay after sustaining a spinal cord injury in a scary fall during Sunday's game between the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic. The team has announced that Daniels was released from a local hospital this morning.

Marquis Daniels was released from the hospital early this AM. He was reported to have been joking and in good spirits.

Daniels was transported to the hospital yesterday on a stretcher after lying on the ground for several minutes in front of a hushed T.D. Banknorth Garden crowd. The team deemed the injury a "bruised spinal cord," and general manager Danny Ainge said Daniels would probably miss the next 1-2 months.  

The injury occurred when Daniels tripped over Gilbert Arenas and had his forehead slam onto the ground. He laid motionless on the ground for several minutes, but did flash a thumbs up sign as he left the floor.
