Hornets Coach Steve Clifford Takes Indefinite Medical Leave

Hornets Coach Steve Clifford Takes Indefinite Medical Leave

Clifford, 56, was hired as head coach of the then-Bobcats in 2013 and led Charlotte to a playoff appearance in his first year.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Hornets coach Steve Clifford will be away from the team for an undetermined period of time to deal with a "health issue".

Clifford missed Monday's game against Orlando.

Silas has been an assistant for the Hornets since 2010, which pre-dates Clifford's tenure as head coach.

Hornets representatives said they had no further comment out of respect for Clifford's privacy.

The Hornets (9-13) are third in the Southeast Division, three games behind Washington. Beyond that, he's been an assistant coach in the league nearly steadily since 2000, save for his time as a scout for the Washington Wizards.

The Hornets host Golden State Wednesday night. When Clifford didn't show up for Monday's shootaround, Silas had a feeling something was amiss. But the Hornets can't be blamed for not offering specific details at this point. There is no timetable set for his return.
