Report: Ainge Suffers Heart Attack


Update from the Globe:

Celtics managing partner Stephen Pagliuca told the Globe that Ainge got to the hospital quickly — something that is critical when a heart attack is in progress — and is "recovering nicely."

"I saw him at about 3:30 p.m. today," Pagliuca said. "I spoke to him and he was already joking about recovering and Eddie House breaking his record [for 3-point percentage in a season] putting him over the top. He was in good spirits. He was with his wife, Michelle, at the hospital. He was in good spirits."

Via WCVB-TV in Boston:

Ainge was resting comfortably after being taken to the hospital early Thursday morning, SportsCenter 5 reported.

Ainge, 50, who took over reins of the Celtics in in 2003 and orchestrated last year's Celtics championship by bringing in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, 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 the Celtics' playoff opener against the Bulls on Saturday.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

Get well Danny.

Geez, can anything else go wrong today? Wait, I take that back.

    I hope Danny gets well. That’s gotta be a scary thing. I hope LA starting a 3-peat in June doesn’t have an adverse effect on his ticker. KIDDING! But seriously, I DO hope he gets well soon and I’ll sincerely pray for him.
    Sorry to get off topic, but isn’t it hilarious how the Yanks got shelled at their new overpriced craphole?

    DR J. Wow. That was a thoughtful post.
