This isn’t the same exact issue that his teammate, Jeff Green had but it’s still a matter surrounding his heart. Very strange to have two guys from the same team be sidelined for a season due to heart ailments. Green seems to be recovering well and let’s just hope the same for Wilcox who has been having a decent year for the Celtics. The Washington Post has some specifics around Wilcox’s ailment…
Boston Celtics forward Chris Wilcox is scheduled to have surgery for an enlarged aorta and will miss the rest of the season.
The team announced Wednesday that the surgery should allow him to resume his career next season.
The operation is scheduled for March 29 at the Cleveland Clinic where another Celtics forward, Jeff Green, had season-ending surgery for an aortic aneurysm on Jan. 9. Doctors have said Green also should be able to play next season.
