RElEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Former NBA standout Rodney Rogers has been hospitalized after getting injured while riding an all-terrain vehicle.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol said Monday that Rogers was four-wheeling in the woods in rural Vance County north of Raleigh on Saturday when he fell off the vehicle.

A patrol spokesman said Rogers was taken by helicopter to Duke University Hospital in Durham. His condition wasn't immediately known Monday night.

Rogers spent 12 seasons in the NBA from 1993-2005 and won the league's Sixth Man Award in 2000 with the Phoenix Suns.
