The 57-year-old majority owner of the Cavs has made rounds recently for his comments about the team and former stars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. He said that the departure of LeBron worked out well for them, while he shared his belief that Irving will leave the Boston Celtics.

The 57-year-old Gilbert has owned the Cavaliers since 2005 and has since become one of the most widely known owners in the league, mainly due to his relationship with LeBron James. His infamous letter written when James left the team for the Miami Heat remains a seminal moment for all involved, but the two have since seemed to bury the hatchet.

More recently, Gilbert raised some eyebrows with comments about the Cavaliers Kyrie Irving trade, but thats been par for the course with his ownership style for a while.

“He received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably,” the statement said. “Our collective thoughts and prayers are with Dan for a speedy recovery.”
