Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers has returned to Boston from his Orlando, Fla., home to undergo surgery on Tuesday for a non-cancerous growth on his throat, a league source said.
Doc Rivers says that coaches are at risk of throat problems due to all the yelling they do during games. Rivers will not be able to speak for two weeks after the procedure, according to the Boston Herald, which first reported the story.
"My wife will be the happiest person in the room about that," Rivers said, according to the newspaper.
