Cavaliers and Quicken Loans Arena owner Dan Gilbert continues his recovery following a late May stroke at a Detroit-area hospital, and Wednesday the team provided an update to his condition.
Via Jay Farner, Quicken Loans CEO the team put out a statement about his condition which read:
“Dan Gilbert and his family are beyond grateful for the thoughts and well wishes from so many people as they focus on Dan’s recovery.
“Dan’s family is happy to share that he maintains his strong sense of humor and focus on constant improvement. In fact, a few days ago, Dan requested his favorite beverage. When the hospital staff informed him they were not able to provide it, in the humorous tone Dan is known for, he insisted that a review of the hospital’s beverage best-practices be completed.
“To be clear, Dan’s recovery is a process that will take time – but we are all confident that he will meet this challenge head on as he always does.”
The 57-year-old has been the Cavs majority owner since March of 2005. He was taken to the hospital by a family friend and the team stated that he suffered a stroke at the hospital and was moved to intensive care later that day.
May 28th Farmer put out a statement saying that Gilbert was “awake, responsive and resting comfortably.”
