Good news: Your inestimable Beat Grunt sailed through his surgery, and is currently resting and recovering in hospital, where we anticipate he’ll be for about a week. We’re looking forward to being able to visit him soon, and I promise that neither the NBA trade deadline nor his expenses will be discussed.
On behalf of his colleagues here at The Star, I really want to thank you all for your outpouring of kindness and good wishes ahead of his surgery. (No word of a lie: Doug joked that it made him feel like Sally Field.) You’ve built a great community here together, and I know he’s looking forward to being back among you.
Thanks and best wishes,
Star Sports Editor
