NBA News: Dallas Mavericks Head Coach Rick Carlisle Collapses At Practice

A scary moment for the Mavs and Carlisle.

Mavericks Head Coach Rick Carlisle reportedly got light headed and collapsed at practice on Friday and was taken off the court on a stretcher. Carlisle sent a text to ESPNDallas.com saying he was fine.

“He just fainted, and I’d bet most of us have had that happen to us,” president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said.

Carlisle is not expected to accompany the Mavericks Friday afternoon when they depart for Palm Springs, California where Dallas will play Phoenix in an outdoor preseason game.
