Isaiah's 911 call
Sources say that a 911 call was placed from Former NBA All star and Knick Coach Isaiah Thomas' home at around midnight Friday. It was not stated that it was Thomas who was rushed to the hospital, after reports say that a man was rushed to a White Plains Hospital due to a drug overdose. Here is some of the story as told to NationalPost.com
NEW YORK -- Police were sent to the home of former NBA player, coach and executive Isiah Thomas in response to a call that someone at his house overdosed on sleeping pills.
Citing an anonymous source, New York City's CBS affiliate reported that it was Thomas who was taken to the White Plains Hospital but his current condition and whereabouts were unknown.
New York Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz issued a statement about Thomas - who remains as a consultant with the team - but would not confirm any specifics about the incident.
"Isiah Thomas spoke with members of the New York Knicks' organization and is OK," the statement read. "He is dealing with a family matter, and we will have no further comment. He has asked that we respect his privacy, and we will."
The report from CBS also said that police did arrive at the embattled former coach and executive's home after a 911 call was placed from a cell phone shortly after midnight Friday.
Details of the incident remain murky, with the New York Daily News identifying the victim only as "a man suffering from a prescription drug overdose."
