SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Jazz rookie Dee Brown is fine after being taken to the hospital to have a neck injury checked out.

Brown was hurt last night when teammate Mehmet Okur landed on him in the first quarter of Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals against Golden State.

According to the Jazz, preliminary x-rays were negative and other test came back clear.

Brown had to be helped from the court last night and then was wheeled on a stretcher and taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The team says Brown has a sprained neck and is listed as day-to-day.
