Sabres Kyle Okposo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- By John Warrow (AP) Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo has spent the past three days in a Buffalo hospital undergoing a battery of tests to determine an undisclosed illness that has sidelined him for more than a week.

A person with direct knowledge of Okposo's status confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the player is in the neuro surgical intensive care unit at Buffalo General Hospital. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Sabres have not revealed Okposo has been hospitalized.

''Kyle continues to be under the care of our doctors as he deals with symptoms from an illness,'' the Sabres said in a statement Wednesday night. ''Out of respect to Kyle and his family, we will have no further comment at this time.''
