Nuggets mascot lowered to the floor while unconscious during pregame introductions



Fans in Denver got a bit of a scare before the Nuggetsí home opener on Friday, when the teamís mascot appeared lifeless as he was lowered to the floor from the rafters during pregame introductions.

Nuggets mascot was just lowered from the ceiling limp and then just laid down on the floor. Wat

A little more detail, from ABC 7 in Denver:
The plan was for Rocky to be lowered in a harness, with a spotlight on him, just before the home opener.
Fans were horrified when a lifeless Rocky was lowered to the center court where he immediately collapsed. The spotlight was quickly turned off.
Rocky was checked by doctors and taken off the court.
Word from the Nuggets was that Rocky had the wind knocked out of him and would be out for the remainder of the game.
It appears to have been nothing lingering that will impact the person in the mascot outfit moving forward, but letís try to remember that a person in a stuffed animal outfit only enhances the pregame festivities to a certain point. Itís probably not worth a danger level of anything greater than zero for any ďstuntsĒ that may come to mind.

As for the game itself, the Nuggets fell to the Blazers by a final of 113-98
