Tests on Allan Chaney show dehydration

Virginia Tech forward Allan Chaney, who fainted at a workout on Wednesday, was dehydrated at the time but the Hokies' medical staff is continuing to monitor and test his heart.

A battery of tests on Chaney showed the only abnormality was dehydration. He spent a night in the hospital and returned to classes on Friday. He could return to basketball activities in a month and, at this point, is expected to play next season. Chaney sat out last season after transferring from Florida.

"The good this is he's doing fantastic," Mark Rogers, Virginia Tech's team physician, said Saturday at a news conference. "He's ready to get back on the court as soon as he can."

Chaney was not made available to comment. On Thursday, a post on Chaney's Twitter account said: "Everything good. All my test came back good. Can't wait to at least shoot again lol. Prolly have a few more things to do b4 I hit the court."

After finishing drills at the workout on Wednesday, Chaney sat down, had a drink of water and then passed out. Medical staff on-site found Chaney to have a faint pulse and weak respirations. An unidentified member of the staff performed CPR on Chaney, who was alert and talking by the time emergency medical services arrived.

Chaney spent one night at Montgomery Regional Hospital. Although the only abnormality shown on tests was dehydration, Chaney will continue to be tested over the next month by Virginia Tech's staff. Tests will include a cardiac magnetic resonance imaging exam, which will provide a 360-degree picture of Chaney's heart.

Chaney had no prior history with heart issues or fainting. He had been screened with an EKG at Florida and at Virginia Tech and was cleared to play at both schools.
