Kings coach Joerger 'all right' after dizzy spell

Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger was taken to the locker room after dropping to a knee during the first quarter of Sunday's game against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Kings said Joerger had a "momentary episode of lightheadedness" and would not return to the sideline for precautionary reasons. 

"He's all right," Kings assistant head coach Elston Turner said of Joerger following the 113-98 loss in San Antonio.

"Sometimes when you stand up real fast from a sitting position, you get a little bit light-headed. That's what happened.

"He saw the doc and our trainers and took the rest of the night off."

Joerger, 43, is in his second season as the Kings coach and is 47-84 with Sacramento.

Turner said Joerger had been "feeling great" before the game. 

"He's a young coach in good health, a lot of energy and he exerts it during the game and in practice," Turner said. "It's just an incident that happened and, unfortunately it was when the lights were on.

"But he's OK. He'll be all right."
