CLEVELAND, OH - November 16th, 2010 -
Cavaliers Hall of Fame radio announcer Joe Tait was released today from The Cleveland Clinic, as he is doing much better and progressing from the “umbrella” filter procedure he underwent recently to help prevent blood clots from reaching his lungs. Joe will now undergo a rehabilitation process over the next several weeks to help regain his strength. His anticipated double bypass and aortic value replacement surgery will be scheduled after further evaluation as he continues his rehab process, but is likely to be done in early January. Joe and the entire Cavaliers organization wish to thank the many fans, broadcasting colleagues and the NBA community around the league that have expressed their well wishes and good thoughts during this difficult and challenging time.
