Sophomore NC State Forward Jericole Hellems took a scary fall yesterday with 28 seconds left in the Wolfpack’s game in Wake Forest, eventually being taken off the court in a stretcher, transported to the hospital to check on injuries to his head and lower back.
Wolfpack nation received good news today.
Hellems has been released from the hospital in Winston-Salem, and has returned to Raleigh in “good spirits.”
I appreciate All the love WPN has showed me. I will be okay the Lord has me and I know I’m blessed. Thank you again to all that reached out. ❤️🐺

While these two updates don’t explain the seriousness of Hellems injuries, it does reveal that he is doing okay.
Some things are much bigger than basketball.
Pray for Jericole.
