Cliff Robinson – who played for the Trail Blazers, Suns, Pistons, Warriors and Nets in an underrated 18-year career – has been hospitalized with a previously undisclosed illness.

Robinson in a statement, via the Trail Blazers:

“I want Trail Blazers fans and friends to know I’m doing well and in the process of getting better.  My family and I appreciate the prayers and well-wishes for my recovery.  I had an unfortunate incident with a minor brain hemorrhage which means I’ll be in rehabilitation for a while.  But I’m excited about trying to get past this speed bump.  I’m improving every day.”

I have a hard time comprehending the idea of a “minor” brain hemorrhage, but hopefully this truly is and Robinson recovers fully and quickly.
