Roger Ebert then posted on Twitter that he does not need surgery.

Chaz Ebert tweeted earlier in the day that her Pulitzer Prize-winning husband was doing well and "asking for computer, will probably tweet." She jokingly attributed the fracture to "tricky disco dance moves."

The 70-year-old Chicago Sun-Times film critic has had health problems over the last several years. He has battled cancer in his thyroid and salivary glands and lost his ability to speak and eat after cancer surgeries.
