A lawsuit filed by the family of Zeke Upshaw, a professional basketball player playing for a G league affiliate of the Detroit Pistons, claims that the team’s medical staff acted negligently when they did not provide swift and proper medical attention after Zeke collapsed on the floor during a game. According to the family’s attorney, Upshaw was on the ground for a full four minutes before he received any kind of CPR or anything else to clear his airway. The suit further states that the lead team physician left the facility before the game ended, and thus was not available when Upshaw collapsed. Upshaw died two days later. His family is being represented by attorneys Robert Hilliard and Ben Crump of Hilliard & Shadowen LLP of Austin, Texas.
