Lance Thomas has said he is fine after suffering a seizure in an Austin Toros game Saturday, tweeting Saturday that he was “feeling a lot better.”
Still, the seizure he suffered seemed frightening to everyone who witnessed it.
From the blog Project Spurs:
In what was a very scary moment here at the Cedar Park Center, after running back on offense during the second quarter, Toros forward Lance Thomas had what appeared to be an episode of an epileptic seizure.
We have not found any history of seizures in his basketball history, but we’ll have more information after the game and wish him a speedy recovery.
It hasn’t been an easy road for Duke’s Class of 2010. Jon Scheyer suffered an eye injury in the NBA summer league, knocking him out of action for months and jeopardizing his career. Brian Zoubek went undrafted despite expectations that he would play in the league, and now trains in the hopes of making it to the NBA.
Thomas has yet to play again for the Toros.
