Update: Miles Simon was diagnosed with pneumonia and will be day-to-day moving forward, the Lakers announced (via ESPN’s Dave McMenamin).

Original story as follows...


Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach and former Arizona Wildcats legend Miles Simon left Staples Center on a stretcher after the team’s preseason win vs. the Sacramento Kings on Thursday, according to several reports.

ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reports Simon was sitting up and conscious, but was accompanied by medical personnel.

Head coach Luke Walton declined to comment on Simon’s condition.

Hopefully Simon is OK.
