Reports: Dwight Howard taken to hospital after feeling ill on flight

Hawks center Dwight Howard was hospitalized Sunday night after feeling ill on a long plane flight to Atlanta, according to multiple reports.

Dehydration is believed to be the cause, and Howard, 30, was released Monday morning, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Howard had been in China last week as part of a promotional tour with Chinese shoe manufacturer Peak.

The 12-year veteran also posted several videos to social media that showed him working out with a personal shooting coach while abroad.

An Atlanta native, Howard signed a three-year, $70.5 million deal with the Hawks this offseason after playing three seasons in Houston.
