Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was hospitalized early Sunday morning in Detroit after he experienced stroke-like symptoms.

Quicken Loans, the company Gilbert founded, announced the news in a statement late Sunday, saying Gilbert “received immediate medical attention and is currently recovering comfortably.”

Gilbert, 57, was born and lives in Detroit. He went to Michigan State in East Lansing and Wayne State Law School in Detroit, founding Quicken — then known as Rock Financial — in 1985.

He bought the Cavaliers in 2005, and the team has reached five NBA Finals since, winning the 2016 title. Gilbert also owns the Cavs’ G League affiliate, the Canton Charge, as well as the AHL’s Lake Erie Monsters and the Arena Football League’s Cleveland Gladiators.
