Doc Rivers To Have Throat Surgery

"Celtics coach Doc Rivers will have surgery today to remove a noncancerous growth from his throat, a team spokesman confirmed. The procedure comes seven months after Rivers had a biopsy to determine if lesions on his throat were cancerous. The results of those tests came back negative (Boston.com)."

I guess Rivers has family history of throat cancer, so it is great news that this isn't anything more serious. I do wonder if this had anything to do with him never having a voice. I know he yells a lot during the game, but it got to the point where he could barely talk. Hopefully everything goes well, and maybe we will be able to understand him better later in the games.
