 ATLANTA (AP) -Toronto Raptors guard T.J. Ford is expected to be released from a hospital Wednesday and return to Toronto, a day after his head bounced on the floor and he was removed from the court on a stretcher.
Raptors spokesman Jamie Deans said he had no details on the time of Ford's release from Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, where Ford was taken for tests Tuesday night.
``All that I know is he's expected to come home today,'' Deans said.
Ford missed the 2004-05 season with Milwaukee following neck surgery, leading to immediate concerns when he didn't get up after his fall.
Toronto forward Chris Bosh and team spokesman Jim LaBumbard said after the game Ford had feeling and movement in his arms and legs.
Raptors director of basketball operations Marc Eversley and assistant trainer Rory Mullin remained in Atlanta with Ford on Tuesday night.
Ford hit the floor hard when fouled by Atlanta's Al Horford late in the game. Horford was ejected for the flagrant foul. He said he was trying to block Ford's shot and instead hit the player's forehead, knocking him to the floor.
Ford scored 26 points in the Raptors' 100-88 win. Toronto hosts Dallas on Wednesday night, and there was no immediate word on Ford's status for the game.
