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