Dave Joerger Rumors
Following a comprehensive medical evaluation, Joerger is determined to be in fine health and expected to resume coaching duties in the next week. Subsequently, Elston Turner will serve as head coach until his return.
Joerger left the bench early in the first quarter of the Kings’ 113-98 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday at AT&T Center. He was walking along the sideline, yelling and clapping when he went down to a knee after feeling lightheaded in front of assistant coach Elston Turner and trainer Pete Youngman.
Turner, Joerger’s lead assistant, coached the rest of the game and said Joerger was “OK.” “Sometimes when you stand up real fast from a sitting position, you get a little bit lightheaded, and that’s what happened,” Turner said. “We took precautionary measures. He came back, saw the doctor and our trainers and took the rest of the night off.”
