Warriors: Jerry West doing well after brief hospital visit

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Golden State Warriors say Hall of Famer and team executive board member Jerry West is doing well after a brief hospital visit following a fall.

Warriors spokesman Raymond Ridder was in touch with West's wife and provided the update Wednesday morning, a day after West was taken to a Southern California hospital for observation and tests.

The 78-year-old West, in attendance during the Warriors' recent long homestand this month, fell on Tuesday.
