Cavs owner Dan Gilbert seems to be recovering well after suffering a stroke in late May. In fact, the Detroit native has been discharged from the hospital and is now moving on to an in-patient rehabilitation center, according to a report from Chad Livengood of Crain’s Detroit Business.

Gilbert received immediate medical attention after experiencing the symptoms of a stroke. The 57-year-old businessman has been recovering since. Though he could be in rehab for a while, Gilbert seems to be in good spirits.
“He’s looking forward to beginning an intensive rehabilitation program and is eager to continue the progress he has made over the last several weeks,” Farner told USA Today, referring to Gilbert.
“The entire family is incredibly grateful for the world-class care Dan received from the entire staff of Beaumont Hospital.”
News of Gilbert’s initial hospitalization came just days after the Cavs announced that John Beilein would be the team’s next head coach. Beilein, who served 12 successful seasons with the University of Michigan, will be trying his hand in the pros as a play-caller for the first time.
Gilbert is the owner of the Cavs, but he is also connected to dozens of business and political efforts in Michigan and Ohio. In fact, he controls roughly 100 buildings in the downtown Detroit area.
The Gilbert family is requesting privacy at this time. Join us in wishing Dan a speedy recovery.
