Atlanta Hawks Cheerleader hits head on Hardwood (Video)
A Atlanta Hawks cheerleader had to be put on a stretcher and taken off the court after hitting her head on the hardwood during the NBA game between the Atlanta Hawks and the Dallas Mavericks Monday night. The girl, who’s been identified as Kristen, banged her head on the floor while attempting a kick routine between the third and fourth quarters.
According to a spokesman for the Atlanta Hawks, the girl was taken to Atlanta Medical Center and was released following “examination by physicians.” Hawks coach Larry Drew spoke after his side’s 127-113 loss. “Our best wishes are with the cheerleader who had the incident on the court,” he said.
