Some good news, the Celtics Marquis Daniels has been released and come home from the hospital.

According to the official Celtics twitter account, “He was reported to have been joking and in good spirits.”

Daniels collapsed early in the second quarter Sunday in the Celtics victory over the Magic. Daniels was trying to post up Gilbert Arenas, got the ball and faced up on him, then tried a sweep-though move and as he did his head bumped into Arenas’ chest and arm.

Daniels has a medical condition in his spine where that kind of hit — even if it is not that hard — can cause brief paralysis. It did and Daniels collapsed to the ground. He was taken off the court on a stretcher and rushed to a local hospital.

He was later diagnosed with a bruised spine and he will be out one month at least. But he is healthy and home, and that’s all that really matters.

    When I saw this I instantly thought there was more at work here than just the collision. Well another C on DL. It’s not like we were getting used to having the full squad anyway.

    Get well, Marquis.
