Miami — The Pistons announced Tuesday that legendary play-by-play announcer George Blaha underwent a successful heart bypass procedure.
The team announced Sunday that Blaha is going to miss the remainder of the season after a heart issue was discovered during a routine checkup.
The team reported that Blaha, who has been the TV announcer for 46 seasons, is doing well and doctors will continue to monitor his recovery.
“I want to give a quick shout out to George Blaha,” Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said before Tuesday’s game against the Pistons. “I wish him well and I wish him a quick recovery. Looking forward to getting him back in the business soon.”
