SALT LAKE CITY (AP) _ Utah Jazz President David Checketts was released from LDS Hospital Friday, after suffering a concussion in a sleigh accident, his wife said.
Debbie Checketts said her husband was resting Friday, but tentatively planned to attend the NBA meetings at Seattle this weekend.
''The doctors gave him permission to go,'' she said.
Checketts was participating in a Mormon ward sleigh-riding party at Mountain Dell Golf Course Wednesday night when he was struck in the head, apparently by another person's knee.
