TORONTO (AP) -Raptors guard T.J. Ford was released from the hospital Wednesday and returned to Toronto, a day after his head struck the floor and he was removed from the court on a stretcher.
He spent a night in Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta for observation and tests, which were negative, the Raptors said. The team's medical staff will reassess him and there is no timetable for his return.
Ford missed the 2004-05 season with Milwaukee following neck surgery, leading to immediate concerns when he didn't get up after his fall. He had feeling in his extremities when taken off the court. He recently returned after missing six games because of a stinger in his left arm.
Raptors director of basketball operations Marc Eversley and assistant trainer Rory Mullin remained in Atlanta with Ford on Tuesday night.
Atlanta rookie Al Horford sent Ford to the floor on a breakaway basket with 1:32 left 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 court.
Ford scored 26 points in the Raptors' 100-88 victory.
