Marquis Daniels removed on a stretcher

Marquis Daniels fell to the ground after a collision with Gilbert Arenas and laid motionless on the Garden floor for about five minutes.  

He got the ball on the right side of the floor and turned to drive on Gilbert Arenas when he hit the side of his head and went straight down.  Paramedics stabilized him and removed him on a stretcher.  The good news is he gave the crowd a thumbs up sign after he was on the stretcher, so whatever happened to him may have just been temporary. 

We'll update this post as more information becomes available.

Quis thumbs up


Via the Celtics: Official word on Marquis Daniels is "neck injury" and no word yet on severity. Daniels is on the way to the hospital now.


Via Woj: Marquis Daniels is going to the hospital with a "neck injury," Celtics say. "He was conscious and talking," C's PR official said. 

 – concious and talking is great news.  


Via Carolyn Manno:  @Gary_Tanguay reporting Marquis Daniels will be ok. All extremities moving according to medical staff sources

    I’m a known troll on here, but damn, that was SCARY! I wish Marquis all the best for a speedy recovery…Whether I hate a team or not, these men are humans that give their lives to this sport and when a player gets hurt or injured, it is NEVER a funny thing. Good luck marquis!!!!

  • MagicMan

    all these celtics hitting their heads. how can this team afford to get even more stupid!? you already have KG to be mentally questionable
    you’re going down cel-dicks

  • KY Celts fan

    Fuck you, you cock-sucking piece of shit! Have some sportsmanship. A man just got injured, possibly severely, and you come here and say something like that? I hope your mother gets raped and your dog shot. Fuck you.

  • Bas Rutten Jr.

    Update 3 = PHEW!!!

  • Mileke

    @MagicMan, you the most ingnorant person I’ve ever seen on this site, you stupid jock sucking bitch….. what gives you nerve to say something like that!!!!!

  • BRADinLA

    Honestly, thanks man.

  • That is much appreciated. Thank you

  • Hey… see the above Lakers fan to know when to be a dick, and when not to be.
    Fuck off

  • Celtics816

    fuck you. seriously how can you even say that? he could be seriously injured from this you dick

  • GeeZeeCeltics

    Have you no feelings? How can someone think of trolling when a man leaves the arena barely moving? Real classy Magic fans.

  • Douche.

  • You, sir, are an idiot.

  • Classless

    ….says the fan of the team with felony gun charge Arenas, “just having fun” Howard, quitter Turkoglu.

  • Classy.

  • Scary moment. Get well soon, man. Prayers to him and his family as well as Celtic nation. Never ever want to see a guy go down like that.

  • AMP

    What is your point, idiot…In order to have games to watch, you need some competitors. Anyone going down like that is scary, not good for the NBA, and certainly not good for any real fans of the game. Good luck Marquis…thanks for the thumbs up!

    With all due respect to Marquis. This could be beneficial for Boston. I’ve been campaigning to get Von Wafer more p.t and I think Marquis sucks, Now Doc does’t have a choice. I hope when Queez gets well Wafer has his P.T and doesn’t relenquish it. No disrespect to Queez, i’m just a big Von Wafer guy and always have been.

  • ShawnCVD

    Very classy. Much appreciated.

  • KY Celts fan

    Where ya at now, MagicMan? Bitch.

  • Lee in Oregon

    Nick that’s not your finest moment. I agree with u on Von, but his minutes should come from Nate.
    Thank God Quisy’s ok and thanks to Reds Army for the update. Great win otherwise, they needed a solid win after the other night. Hopefully Quisy wont miss too much time but this could still be a serious injury. Just glad he’s not paralyzed.

  • Caterpillar from Italy

    Rude comment at the wrong time, sorry.

  • CB

    To be honest, I first thought he had just fallen down. But when he just layed there motionless… I got scared. I really hope his neck injury isn’t too serious. I’m so glad that he is okay. I relaxed a little bit when he gave the thumbs up on his way out, but this is serious.
    Oh and Magic-man. GROW UP. Get over yourself okay? I know you aren’t a fan, but come on. Marquis could have been hurt very severely and you have the nerve to come here and post something like that. You are pathetic. I want to introduce you to a word. I don’t know if you’ve heard the word or if it’s just too big a word for you to comprehend but it’s called SPORTSMANSHIP which obviously you don’t have. Please at least show a little respect. If that’s too hard for you to do, then please don’t post anything. It’s not that hard.
    My prayers are with Marquis and I hope he gets well soon.

  • Nick

    dude. i dont want the guy to be injured, i’m sure he’s a cool dude but the facts are Von Wafer needs to be getting burn right now, I would never wish an injury on anybody ot even an laker, yankee, steeler, colt, jet, member of the Heat or ne other rival of ours. But Queez just annoys me kuz he could be so much better and he’s fucking fragile too. This happened to him in the finals last year. GREEN 18, I cant deal with not winning a title this year, i’ll fucking go nuts

  • KY Celts fan

    Nick, nows not the time. Pipe down.

  • Mileke

    Im a huge Von Wafer fan, though I dont like that Quis is injured, Von can be a HUGE s[ark when given the chance, but the Quis and Von matchup is whats dangerous, but hey Im looking forward to seein Von too, but get well soon Quis #beleedat! This would also give Von experience for the playoffs!
