Harris collapsed during halftime of the Wildcats' game at Alabama on Saturday. After checking into a hospital in Tuscaloos, Harris was released in time to travel back to Lexington with his teammates on UK's charter flight.

Harris, a 6-foot-7 junior from Anchorage, Alaska, started Saturday's game and played seven minutes in the first half, scoring one point. Alabama led 25-19 at the half. When UK returned to the floor for the second half, Harris and Coach Billy Gillispie were not with the team. UK media relations reported that Harris had collapsed on his way out of the locker room and was taken to DCH Medical Center in Tuscaloosa.

Hospital officials later said Harris was in the emergency room listed in stable and then fair condition.
