LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — The Golden State Warriors say Hall of Famer and team executive board member Jerry West is doing well after a brief hospital visit following a fall.
Warriors spokesman Raymond Ridder was in touch with West’s wife and provided the update Wednesday morning, a day after West was taken to a Los Angeles hospital for observation and tests.
The 78-year-old West, who was in attendance during the Warriors’ long homestand this month, fell on Tuesday.
West spent 40 years with the Lakers, first as a guard from 1960-1974, and then as a coach and general manager. West retired from the Lakers front office in 2002.
West won one NBA Championship as a Lakers player and six more as a Lakers executive. He was also part of the Warriors’ 2015 NBA Championship.
TMZ.com first reported West’s hospitalization.
