Kings' Dave Joerger to resume coaching duties next week after dizzy spell

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger will resume his coaching duties next week after a medical evaluation determined he is in fine health.

Joerger left two minutes into a game against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday after becoming lightheaded.

Joerger slapped his hands together after a non-call, took two steps toward midcourt and then turned toward his bench and dropped to one knee. He braced himself with one hand on the court and another on a staff member before rising with the help of assistant Elston Turner. He was evaluated and flew back to Sacramento on Monday.

Turner will coach the team until Joerger returns.
