Doc Rivers had surgery today to remove a non-cancerous growth from this throat. Doc is under orders not to speak for two weeks:

“My wife will be the happiest person in the room about that,” the Celtics [team stats] coach said after arriving in Boston…

His son Austin sent out this tweet earlier this afternoon:

Please everybody pray for my dad ad he just got done with his surgery today on his throat! Hope he recovers okay!!

Back in October, Doc had a procedure to relieve pressure on his vocal cords. If only the guys would listen, he could just stop yelling.

We wish you a speedy recovery, Doc!

    It was from yelling at the refs for their horrible officiating. Get well soon Doc.
