Atlanta Hawks announcer Bob Rathbun is back in the broadcast booth after a scary medical emergency that happened on-camera earlier this month.
Rathbun, 68, shared the good news of his return on Monday morning via Twitter. Rathbun told his followers he’d return to work on Monday evening, adding that it’s “great to be back” on the broadcast with his colleagues at Bally Sports.
Rathbun and co-host Dominique Wilkins were previewing the matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Atlanta Hawks when Rathbun began to have an emergency on Dec. 5th at the State Farm Arena.

Shortly after the incident, Bally Sports Southeast said in a statement that the announcer was taken to a local medical facility, where he received treatment for dehydration.
