Less than 24 hours after leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers game on a stretcher after a courtside collision with LeBron James, Ellie Day is evidencing a sense of humor.
The wife of the No. 2 player in the world was released from the hospital Friday morning after experiencing concussion-like symptoms and tweeted the following Friday afternoon:

Wow!! It's official. More messages from getting plowed over by LeBron than Jason winning a major. HA!
First of all, I am OK!! 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 time to react, so would have I. Also, I would not have liked both dudes landing on me. LeBron is huge and had such momentum he could not have stopped!!
Third, people are saying its a money grab or some crap which is obviously absurd. Much like attending a golf event and risking getting hit with a ball, sitting court side you risk getting run into. I would never make anything more of it. They're huge men doing their job. I was stabilized because I smashed my neck and head and obviously it was with great force.
Last, I am truly touched by the insane outpouring of support and those of you covering me in prayer. It could have been so much worse. I am thankful for so many things. One, that I didn't have Lucy on my chest in her carrier, and that I wasn't still pregnant. Also that Dash wasn't with us. Also that Amy has my babies and got them to me at the hospital so I could feed little Lucy. It was my biggest concern when I came out of it. And that's the end of my story.
Much love to all of you.
She later added:
I would be as happy as the rest of you to not hear anymore or see anymore about this! Moving right along...Back to my babies.— Ellie Day (@ellielaneday) December 18, 2015
