Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was hospitalized Sunday after reportedly suffering symptoms of a stroke in Detroit.
The 57-year-old Gilbert was taken to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital early Sunday morning, where he is “recovering comfortably,” according to The Detroit News. A native of Detroit whose businesses are headquartered in the city, Gilbert was scheduled to speak Wednesday at the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Mackinac Policy Conference.
Details of Gilbert’s condition and diagnosis were not released.
“He received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably. Our collective thoughts and prayers are with Dan for a speedy recovery,” said a statement released through Gilbert’s family of businesses to The Detroit News.
Gilbert, the founder and chairman of Quicken Loans and a major business and political influence in Michigan and Ohio, has been majority owner of the Cavaliers since 2005.
