WASHINGTON – Ellie Day, the wife of Australian golf star Jason Day, had concussion symptoms Friday but was out of the hospital after being fallen upon by LeBron James while sitting courtside at an NBA game.

Day, who gave birth to the couple’s second child last month, was taken out on a stretcher after James tumbled into her while chasing a loose ball in the fourth quarter of Thursday’s 104-100 victory over Oklahoma City.

”Ellie Day I hope you’re doing okay! My apologies! Hope u guys come back to another game soon. Love LJ!” James tweeted Friday.

The wife of the 2015 PGA Championship winner was kept overnight for observation at Cleveland’s MetroHealth Medical Center before being released after being knocked onto the floor by the NBA superstar while sitting beside her husband along the sideline.

On Friday afternoon, Ellie Day posted a statement on her Twitter account that said ”KingJames we good!” and marveled at the attention as it detailed how being tackled felt.

”Wow!! It’s official. More mesages from getting plowed over by Lebron than Jason winning a major. HA,” she tweeted.

”First of all, I am okay!! I am incredibly sore and exhausted. Being tackled by that large man I would compare to a minor car accident. My head and neck hit pretty hard so it was really scary. My whole body feels like it was hit by a truck.

”Second, it was so fast. I didn’t remember until 2am seeing the ball come toward me. It was a blur. To the crazies that think Jason should have protected me– if he had had time to react, so would have I. Also, I would not have liked both dudes landing on me.”

James saved the ball from going off the court but only by hurling himself beyond the boundary and head-first into Ellie Day. (AFP)
