The Boston Celtics announced today that Head Coach Glenn “Doc” Rivers underwent successful surgery to remove a benign polyp from his throat. He has been informed by doctors that he is cancer free.
“I’m doing great,” said Rivers. “Thank you to everyone for checking in on me. I can’t talk for two weeks which I’m sure makes my players and family extremely happy. On a serious note, I urge all coaches to get their throats checked. We put a lot of stress on our vocal cords during the course of a season.”
