FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -American basketball player A.J. Moye has been hospitalized after apparently suffering a stroke following a head-on collision with a teammate in practice.

Moye's team Deutsche Bank Skyliners Frankfurt says the 28-year-old forward has been taken to a hospital for "intensive examinations.''

The club said the former Indiana University player developed speech problems after Monday's collision and displayed "unusual behavior'' a day later, when he was taken to see the team doctor and then sent to an emergency room.

The club says his condition progressively worsened during that time.

Well that's sad. Get well AJ

I think this is more recent:

“He is showing no long-term effects,” Moye’s agent, Aaron Smith, said Thursday. “He has no paralysis. His speech is fine. His family is with him now. It looks like he’ll have a full recovery.

“He did suffer a stroke. It was precipitated by a collision in practice. A.J. had a couple of concussions at IU and he’s had a couple since he’s been a pro. They are doing a lot of tests to be sure of exactly what happened.”

Yeah I had brought this up in the other thread. Looks like he'll be ok.

Really great news that he will be okay and make a full recovery. Like I said in the other thread, AJ is one of my all-time favorite Hoosiers. Played his heart out on the court and has been a great ambassador to the program since he left. That block on Carlos Boozer in the NCAA Tournament will be forever remembered in Hoosier lore.

I had to find the pic to re-live that great memory:


Get well A.J.

First, get well AJ.

Second, obligatory sarcasm:
Don't let Roger Goodell find out about this. He'll try to eliminate helmet-to-helmet hits in basketball, too.

I'm glad he's going to be OK. Always loved AJ.
