Zeke Upshaw of the NBA G League’s Grand Rapids Drive collapsed on the court with less than a minute to go in Saturday night’s game against the Long Island Nets.
Drive guard Zeke Upshaw has been lying on his chest with his hands at his side from the last few minutes and hasn't moved. Announcers saying it is because of some kind of collision but don't know how it happened. Sending my best wishes to him so it isn't as serious as it looks.
