George Karl undergoing cancer-related procedure

1 Comment

George Karl fought prostate cancer in 2005 and throat cancer in 2010 while coaching the Nuggets.

Unfortunately, the latter form is again affecting Karl.

Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee:

Kings coach George Karl said he’s having a medical procedure Thursday related to cancer in his throat and that he will miss the day’s practice.

“I’m having a procedure for a cancer in my throat,” Karl said.

When asked if the procedure was serious, Karl said “no” twice.

When Kings general manager Vlade Divac was asked if he was concerned about Karl, he said “of course, of course.”

“Coach told me the other day,” Divac said. “I told him to take as much time as he needs. … We probably won’t know the results for a couple days.”

Hopefully, this is as minor as Karl says and not as significant as it sounds
