Wichita State frosh leaves hospital five days after collapsing

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

While his status for when he'll play in the future remains unknown, Wichita State freshman guard D.J. Bowles has, at least, left the hospital. Bowles collapsed during a workout a week ago, last Tuesday. He stayed at Via Christi Hospital for five days, undergoing tests, before leaving Sunday.

Bowles, who is from Cleveland, Tenn., has more scheduled tests to endure, and the university has asked for the media to respect the family's privacy as doctors continue to determine the cause of his collapse at WSU's Koch Arena.

But the 18-year-old Bowles and those around him haven't been radio silent. The Wichita Eagle reported last week that Bowles was in "good spirits" after the scare last Tuesday. He has no history of heart problems or collapsing while playing basketball, according to his father.

Bowles also has been checking in on Twitter, and on Saturday while he was still cooped up at the hospital, he sent out the following.
