Doctors in Lithuania say basketball Hall-of-Famer Arvydas Sabonis is in intensive care after suffering a heart attack.

Doctors in Sabonis' home town of Kaunas said Wednesday that the former NBA player's condition is stable and not life-threatening.

The 46-year-old Sabonis was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday night after going into cardiac arrest while playing basketball.

Sabonis helped the Soviet Union win gold at the 1988 Olympics, beating the United States in the semifinals. The center played seven seasons for the Portland Trail Blazers between 1995-2003. He retired from professional sports six years ago and was recently inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.
