The OKC Thunder may have managed to get back into the win column Wednesday following an ugly loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, but one of the main storylines pertaining to their bout against the Portland Trail Blazers revolves around one of the club's talents who didn't even see playing time on the night.

Following a timeout call in the second quarter, veteran big man Bismack Biyombo appeared to collapse onto the hardwood in front of Oklahoma City's bench.

A scary sight to see, after a few moments, Biyombo was able to walk off the floor of his own accord but did not return to the bench for the remainder of the night, thus leaving fans and pundits alike worried about his well-being.

Following the Thunder's 128-120 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers coach Mark Daigneault provided an update on the 31-year-old's health status and, fortunately, it appears he's in good spirits.

"He's fine. He just fainted, basically, but he was in the locker room at halftime laughing and joking. He stayed back there but he's doing fine."

In the hours following the incident, more updates were provided regarding the center's health, as it is now being reported that team physicians have cleared him of "any serious medical issue," per Nick Gallo of Bally Sports Oklahoma.

According to the reports, the veteran will receive further evaluation on Thursday.

Biyombo has been a member of the Thunder since agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with the club back in early February and has seen action on a total of four games thus far into his tenure.
