Cavs owner Dan Gilbert suffers stroke, remains in hospital

Share

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is resting comfortably after suffering a stroke.

The 57-year-old was hospitalized Sunday after not feeling well and had the stroke while under medical care, Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner said in a statement released Monday night. Gilbert was immediately taken in for a catheter-based procedure at a Detroit-area hospital and then moved to recovery in an intensive care unit.

Farner said Gilbert is “awake, responsive and resting comfortably.” He added Gilbert and his family are “immensely grateful to the doctors and nurses whose early intervention is already paying dividends toward his recovery.”

Gilbert, who has owned the Cavs since 2005, founded Quicken Loans, the nation’s largest online mortgage lender.

Farner said the company will update the public as additional details become known.
