OAKLAND, Calif. — ESPN reporter Shelley Smith said Sunday night she was doing well and undergoing tests at an East Bay hospital after she collapsed in the Golden State Warriors‘ locker room following their 113-111 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
A Golden State team doctor was nearby during her scare, and she was immediately moved to the training room to be attended to by the medical staff. She was then taken to a hospital for further evaluation.
Smith — a regular at Golden State playoff games and practices in recent seasons — tweeted:
I’m good!!! Waiting for test results! Thankyou everyone!! https://t.co/qENFQ1Iw2P
