Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger was said to be OK after suffering a brief dizzy spell and falling to one knee before leaving Sunday's 113-98 loss to the Spurs in the first quarter. The Kings said Joerger experienced a "momentary episode of light-headedness." He did not return to the game for precautionary reasons. "He's OK. He's alright," Kings assistant coach Elston Turner said. "Sometimes when you stand up real fast from a sitting position, you get a little bit light-headed. And that's what happened." Officials weren't sure whether Joerger would remain with the team, which plays Tuesday at New Orleans, or return to Sacramento. Joerger appeared to be experiencing some discomfort when he was shown on the scoreboard during pregame introductions. Turner said that, to the best of his knowledge, Joerger had been "feeling great" before the game.
