Hornets coach out with ‘health issue’
CHARLOTTE, N.C. >> Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford will be away from the team for an undetermined period of time to deal with a “health issue.”
The team made the announcement Wednesday in a release. Clifford missed Monday night’s game against the Orlando Magic because he was not feeling well. Clifford, 56, has battled heart problems in the past, but a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press the issue was not a heart-related. The team says there is no timetable for Clifford’s return and would have no further comment.
