Golden State Warriors assistant coach Dejan Milojevic has been hospitalized after a sudden and serious health issue at a restaurant in Salt Lake City on Tuesday night.
Milojevic, 46, had traveled with the Warriors for Wednesday night’s game against the Utah Jazz.
The NBA announced that the game has been postponed because of a “medical emergency in the Warriors family,” and that a makeup date will be announced at a later time.
There were players and coaches dining together when Milojevic’s health episode occurred, sources told ESPN.
The Warriors announced Wednesday that they would provide updates on Milojevic’s status “as appropriate.”
Milojevic, who joined Steve Kerr’s staff in 2021, is a well-regarded and popular coach in the NBA and international basketball communities. He has a strong relationship with fellow Serbian Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets.
Milojevic had a 15-year professional playing career, including stops in Serbia, Spain, Montenegro and Turkey.
