UPDATE: Mirza Teletovic has been ruled out for the season by the team with bilateral pulmonary embolus (multiple blood clots in the lungs).

Brooklyn Nets forward Mirza Teletovic was taken to a local hospital for testing due to “shortness of breath,” according to the team.

There was a stretcher and two paramedics available for Teletovic, but he walked out of the arena in street clothes, according to TNT. He was not feeling any symptoms prior to the game.

Teletovic was treated and released, tweeting his thanks to fans for their support after the game.
