OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Creighton guard Josh Jones is returning to Omaha, Neb., for additional tests after fainting before a game.
Jones was taken to a Lincoln hospital after passing out before the Bluejays' game against Nebraska in Lincoln on Thursday night. Creighton sports information director Rob Anderson says Jones' condition has stabilized.
In a statement released by the school, Jones says he's in good spirits and doing well.
Coach Greg McDermott said after the game that Jones fainted during pregame warm-ups and was taken from the Devaney Center on a stretcher.
Jones was diagnosed with a bacterial infection during his senior year at Omaha Central High School and underwent surgery to replace a heart valve. He resumed playing basketball in December 2007.
