Hor­nets coach out with ‘health is­sue’

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS -

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.
