Cavs owner Dan Gilbert, 57, was hospitalized on Sunday with stroke symptoms. As first reported by The Detroit News, Gilbert was admitted to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital in Michigan early on Sunday.

At this time, no details are available regarding his prognosis. According to a statement from Quicken Loans, the company he founded and currently runs, he received “immediate medical attention” and is “resting comfortably.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, a stroke occurs when “blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients.” It is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Gilbert’s last public appearance with the Cavs was at new coach John Beilein’s introductory press conference on May 21. Per The Detroit News, he is scheduled to speak this upcoming Wednesday at the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Mackinac Policy Conference.
