Nuggets coach Karl to miss time after cancer resurfaces

Denver Nuggets coach George Karl is expected to miss several games during the rest of the regular season while he undergoes chemotherapy treatments to deal with a recurrence of cancer, the 58-year-old told Tuesday afternoon.

Karl will not take a formal leave of absence during his treatments, which have already begun, but will obviously not be able to be on the bench all the time during the treatment schedule.

Karl is a prostate cancer survivor, having undergone successful surgery in 2005 after his initial diagnosis. But the cancer that has been discovered this time is not in the same area, according to sources. Karl knew the diagnosis last week, before coaching the Western Conference All-Star team in Dallas.

Karl is hoping to just miss nine games while he undergoes the chemotherapy treatments. He will coach the Nuggets for the next three weeks while the treatments continue, but will then take selected games off in March and April. The Nuggets return from the All-Star break on Thursday with a game at Cleveland, and play at Washington Friday before returning home for a Sunday afternoon game against Boston.

George Karl is a fighter and I hope he fights through this because he is a great coach. His son Coby is also two time cancer survivor, they are very strong people and for that I admire them. Get Well soon George Karl.

I understand Karl has Neck and Throat cancer this time around. Cancer does suck balls. You never know wtf its gonna do and its a process that requires tons of patience and strong will. I hope Karl gets through this he always been one of my favourites. Mainly cause he coaches teams I enjoyed watching (Ray Ray's bucks, Gloves Sonics, Dr. Js Sixers and now Melo). Aside from that keep fighting
