Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert hospitalized with ‘stroke-like’ symptoms

Billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert is recovering after suffering symptoms of a stroke and seeking hospital care in Royal Oak, Mich.

Officials with Detroit-based Quicken Loans said in a statement that Gilbert “received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably” after going to a hospital early Sunday. Gilbert is the company’s founder and chairman.

The company said Gilbert’s family requests privacy.

Gilbert also is majority owner of the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers. He was in Cleveland on Tuesday to introduce new Cavaliers coach John Beilein after the former Michigan coach was hired on May 13, a day before the NBA draft lottery.

The Detroit News reported that Gilbert’s hospitalization comes a month before his Rocket Mortgage is to host Detroit’s first PGA Tour event.

It also follows his launch of a ballot drive just days earlier to push auto insurance reform in Michigan. The state Legislature passed a landmark insurance reform bill Friday.
