Injury Updates For Jazz @ Warriors Game: Utah's Kyrylo Fesenko Is Out With "Gastric Distress"

Kyrylo Fesenko is a big body. He would have been a handful against the Warriors tonight if he could suit up. But Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports that Fesenko is out with "gastric distress." 

I'm not trying to be insensitive about the situation, but what is going on in the NBA and tummy aches? Brandan Wright, still doubtful for the second game in a row, is still recovering from a bout of stomach flu. And now Fesenko is unable to go tonight because...maybe he's been "going" too much if you know what I mean.

Is this an issue only affecting big men? Are there backcourt players also having gastro-intestinal issues? 

I looked up "gastric distress" and there was nothing that seem to fit that profile besides a strange video advertisement for a tummy ache medicine. But from watching this video, it looks like this medicine can get you ready to play basketball instantly.  To be more direct, watch .26 to about .38 and someone get this to Fesenko as soon as possible.
