ESPN’s Shelley Smith relayed some good news Sunday night after a scary incident following Game 1 of the Western Conference finals between the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs.
Smith, who was covering the game as a reporter for ESPN, collapsed in the Warriors’ locker room at Oracle Arena following Golden State’s 113-111 comeback win over San Antonio, according to multiple reports. The Warriors’ medical staff tended to Smith, who then was taken to a hospital for further evaluation, and she tweeted a little while later that she was doing “good.”
Smith also texted “I’m good” to The Associated Press and said she was being evaluated for a possible stroke, according to The Washington Post. An ESPN spokesman wrote in a statement to The Washington Post on Monday morning that Smith had “felt ill” at Oracle Arena and “is now alert and responsive.”
Smith is a fighter, having recovered from breast cancer and melanoma in recent years. We wish her a speedy recovery after this latest scare.
