A message from Doug Smith to his followers, friends and readers

As you may or may not be aware, our beloved friend Doug suffered a rather serious heart attack on Sunday night and is recovering in hospital while awaiting the next steps.

He wanted to pass along his thanks for the hundreds of emails, texts and tweets of well wishes from all over and let you know he’s getting through it as best as he can.

At this point, his focus is on his health and that means stepping away from the Raptors beat for the time being. There’s no timetable for his return at the moment, but a return is planned.

Everyone here at the Star is thinking about him, pulling for him and sending positive vibes his way.
