Reports: Celtics’ Wilcox Out For Season Due To Heart Issue

BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Celtics waited and hoped for good news on Chris Wilcox, but it looks as though it’s not coming.

The Celtics’ forward will miss the remainder of the season, according to The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn. The Boston Herald also reported the news.

The Herald reports the issue is not career-threatening, but he may need to undergo heart surgery.

Wilcox did not travel with the team after doctors found an issue with his heart last week.

The 29-year-old Wilcox played in 28 games this year, averaging an efficient 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game. He signed a one-year deal worth $3 million this past offseason.

    That cocaine is a hell of a drug. Say hello to Lenny Bias when you see him.

      Hey Rob Cleary, Having an Aortic heart valve replacement surgery is not cocaine related. I had that surgery in 1997 and I can tell you it is Not a pleasant experience. I rushed back from the surgery to try to save my job. I worked in communications in south Florida and I Never touched cocaine or any other drugs. Rob Cleary, your comment is totally tasteless. I hope that Chris Wilcox will have a successful surgery and will take his time in recovering from his surgery. Good luck Chris.
