GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — An NBA G League player for the Grand Rapids Drive collapsed on the court near the end of a game with the Long Island Nets and was rushed to a hospital.

Sarah Jbara, a spokeswoman for the team, tells mlive.com that Zeke Upshaw tumbled to the floor Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) with about 50 seconds remaining in the game. He was taken off the court on a stretcher. His condition was not immediately known.

The 26-year-old Upshaw scored 11 points to help the Drive earn a playoff spot with the 101-99 victory in the regular-season finale.

Upshaw is in his second season with the Drive. From Chicago, the 6'6" swingman played three seasons at Illinois State and finished his college career with a year at Hofstra.
