Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins released the following statement this afternoon:
While at dinner last night, Bobcats Head Coach Steve Clifford suffered chest pains. He went to the hospital and was later admitted. After testing this morning, doctors concluded that a procedure was necessary to place two stents in his heart. He is resting comfortably and is expected to re-join the team soon. Associate Head Coach Patrick Ewing will serve as the acting head coach for tonight’s game vs. New York.
