A pregame stunt didn't go as planned at the Pepsi Center, as Denver Nuggets mascot "Rocky" passed out while being lowered from the rafters on Friday night. reported that Rocky was checked out by the team's medical personnel before walking off the court on his own.

The mascot later sent out good news:

Feeling much better, #NuggetsNation! Thanks for your support. I hope to be back in action for 11/5 vs the @Spurs. Go @DenverNuggets!
