Celtics Danny Ainge Resting After Heart Attack
Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge has suffered a heart attack, WCVB in Boston reported.
Ainge was resting comfortably after being taken to the hospital early Thursday morning, the television station reported.
Ainge, 50, took over the Celtics in 2003. He helped the Celtics win a championship last season by bringing in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. Ainge did not attend Wednesday night’s Celtics game because he was feeling sick.
Ainge woke up Thursday morning with chest pains and was taken to the hospital. Doctors later inserted a stent to unclog an artery that was 100 percent clogged.
Ainge will be in the hospital for a few days and will probably miss attending the Celtics playoff opener against the Bulls on Saturday. He is expected to make a full recovery. Story Credit: ESPN.COM
