Former NBA player Mookie Blaylock is listed in serious condition following a car wreck Friday night.  

The All-Star guard, who spent seven seasons with the Atlanta Hawks, was driving his SUV when he crashed head-on into a van, leaving a female passenger in the other car dead.

Hospital Spokeswoman Nicole Gustin tells E! that Mookie Blaycock was in critical condition when he was brought to the Atlanta Medical Center on Friday night. Today, Blaycock is listed in serious condition.

And Mookie's getting support not only from ballplayers like Clippers star Chris Paul but also from the band Pearl Jam, who named their debut album Ten after Mookie's jersey number. 

The band tweeted: "Sending good thoughts to Mookie" along with a photo of the former player.

We extend our best wishes as well.
