Marquis Daniels released from hospital

February, 7, 2011
Celtics guard Marquis Daniels was released from the hospital Monday morning with a bruised spinal cord and is in good spirits, according to the Celtics' Twitter account.

Daniels had been taken to New England Baptist Hospital after a second-quarter collision with guard Gilbert Arenas during Sunday's game with the Orlando Magic. Daniels fell face-first to the parquet after the initial injury. After being attended to by team doctors and arena paramedics, Daniels needed to be taken from the court on a stretcher in a scary scene that marred a nationally televised battle of rivals.

"Marquis is doing well," Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said at a news conference with team physician Brian McKeon after the game. "I was just with him at New England Baptist Hospital. He's moving, he's fine. His arms and his legs, everything is fine."

"I think he was scared when he was on the court, because he couldn't really move there for a short period of time, so that scared him," Ainge said. "But he's had some issues with this before and some tingling in his body -- his arms and things before."

Daniels is expected to miss at least a month.
