Full Speed LeBron James Violently Collides Into Golfer’s Wife Sitting Courtside
LeBron James is a good guy. LeBron James is also a big guy.
While chasing a ball heading out of bounds in the fourth quarter of Thursday’s home win over the Thunder, the Cavaliers stud ran into Ellie Day, the wife of golfer Jason Day.
The collision was intense — she wound up going to the hospital on a stretcher. James, who is six-foot-eight, 250 pounds, was going full throttle, so you can only imagine how painful the impact was for Day, who was released from the hospital on Friday morning.
Ellie Day I hope you're doing okay! My apologies! Hope u guys come back to another game soon. Love LJ!

The Days have a home in Columbus and frequent Cavaliers games. Ellie, who gave birth to a baby last month, was sitting next to Jason at the time of the collision.
James went over to check on Ellie to see how she was doing. Later he said, “It wasn’t anything out of the usual besides the injury,” James said. “But to me, obviously her health is very important, and hopefully she’s doing well. The guys told us she’s doing great now. So, but you know, I was going for a loose ball. Just trying to keep the possession going, and I hate that that was the end result of it.”
Here are the Days with another couple before the accident. That’s her on the right.
