Report: Howard released from hospital

Atlanta Hawks center Dwight Howard was released from hospital on Monday after recovering from a bout of dehydration, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Howard was admitted to hospital on Sunday night after feeling unwell on a flight back to Atlanta from China. 

The 30-year-old had been in China last week as part of a promotional tour with Peak, a Chinese shoe manufacturer.

During his trip to China, Howard had been working with a personal shooting coach and uploaded numerous videos to his social media accounts. 

Born in Atlanta, Howard joined his hometown team in July on a three-year, $70.5 million deal after spending three seasons in Texas with the Houston Rockets. 

His career also included stints with the Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Lakers.
