Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was back on the bench for Monday night's preseason game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, three days after collapsing at a team practice.

Carlisle was hospitalized following a fainting spell during Friday's team workout and missed Saturday night's outdoor game against Phoenix in California.

The 50-year-old Carlisle rested over the weekend, and was back for Monday's shootaround. He insisted he experienced no ill effects from the episode.

"I was dehydrated and light-headed and I fainted," Carlisle said before Monday night's game. "According to people I've talked to, fainting happens more times than you think. Time to move on."
