Cavaliers owner Gilbert discharged from hospital

Dan Gilbert has been majority owner of the Cavaliers since March 2005.

Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert has been discharged from the hospital and relocated to a rehabilitation center as he continues his recovery from last month’s stroke, Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner said in a statement Thursday.

Inpatient rehab is generally the next step toward recovery for stroke patients following a hospital stay. Gilbert, 57, had been in Michigan’s Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak since May 25. Quicken Loans officials said Gilbert suffered a stroke the following morning.

“The entire family is incredibly grateful for the world-class care Dan received from the entire staff of Beaumont Hospital,” Farner said. “Dan is looking forward to beginning an intensive rehabilitation program and is eager to continue the progress he has made over the last several weeks.”

Gilbert is a resident of Franklin, Mich. He is the founder of Quicken Loans as well as several other companies, and has owned the Cavaliers since March 2005.

The Cavs have made five appearances in the NBA Finals in that period, winning their lone championship in 2016.

The Cavs own the Nios. 5 and 26 picks in Thursday’s draft.
