RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Spiders’ freshman power forward Grant Golden has been discharged from St. Mary’s Hospital Monday afternoon and will see a cardiologist in the evening to determine a further course of action or treatment.

Golden returned to campus and attended but did not participate in Monday’s practice at the Robins Center.

There is no timetable for his return and he will not travel with Richmond (5-5) for Tuesday night’s game against James Madison (1-9) in Harrisonburg, Va.

Golden announced the news on his personal Twitter account in the middle of the afternoon.

Saturday afternoon during the Spiders’ home basketball game against Texas Tech, Golden collapsed during action on the court. He would collapse one more time after collecting himself, then once more when on the sideline being attended to by team trainers and physicians.|

Golden was taken to St. Mary’s hospital that evening. He stayed there through the weekend.

A team representative tells 8News tests hadn’t shown anything definitive during his time at St. Mary’s.

In a statement release from the basketball program, Spiders’ head coach Chris Mooney said:

“It was great to see Grant back in the Robins Center on Monday. Obviously, we have been praying and thinking about him over the course of the weekend. I would like to thank all of our medical staff that have cared for Grant and continue to work with him now. We will continue to evaluate him to ensure the best course of action and treatment moving forward.”
