It’s hard to tell exactly what happened from the video (below) — an Atlanta Hawks cheerleader dancing between quarters did a kick as part of the routine, he plant foot slips and she falls with her head hitting the floor.

The game was delayed briefly as she had to be carted off the court with a neck brace before being taken to hospital for further evaluation, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Her name is Kristin (last name not released) and Hawks coach Larry Drew said she is doing well.

“Our best wishes are with the cheerleader who had the incident on the court,” coach Larry Drew said to start his postgame press conference. “She is doing well, from what I’m told. We are hoping that she is OK and are keeping things in perspective.”

    I don’t think that’s supposed to be funny. But it was. I guess I’m a jerk.

      Its a simple rule, when someone falls if they are hurt you help them. If they are ok, well then we all know what happens next…

    I could be wrong but on the video I saw her attempt to raise herself up immediately after impact, I don’t think she was actually knocked out

    Perhaps now(not likely) is a good time to evaluate the reasoning behind this inane exercise. While watching a bevy of young ladies demonstrate the physical movements required to perform coitus is not unpleasant,there is little or no reason for it to be performed amidst a professional sporting event. It is in fact,just plain silly.

    I hope she’s ok.

    Thought it was a picture of Jason Terry.

    What? Too soon?

      No, just classless. But that’s expected from a bandwagoner.
