"Mirza was diagnosed with pulmonary embolus on January 22 and started on the appropriate medications for this condition," Dr. Farber said. "Diagnostic testing was arranged and he was then observed until testing showed that he reached the expected therapeutic range. We are pleased to say that he reports no symptoms at this time and that he will be discharged to return home today."
Teletovic is expected to be ready for next season. In 40 games, he averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds.
"This was a true collaborative effort between our medical team and training staff and the local physicians at the Los Angeles hospital where Mirza was treated," Dr Farber said. "I am really pleased with how Mirza has progressed. We will evaluate him upon return, personally review all of the testing he had done, and arrange for further testing if necessary."
"It was very shocking,"
"It’s random and just to hear that and then hear some of the things that he said over the course of the past week of so about how he can’t breathe. … It’s kind of scary."
"It surprised me a lot because I knew he had some problems, but he told me that he wasn’t in good shape and he told me that’s the problem," Bogdanovic said. "But at the end [of the day], it’s a big problem for him and for us."
Teletovic averaged 8.5 points and 4.9 rebounds this season for Brooklyn.
Teletovic was taken to the hospital during Thursday's game against the Clippers after experiencing shortness of breath. He underwent a series of tests including a CT scan, which revealed multiple blood clots on the lungs.
The third-year forward will finish the season with averages of 8.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.3 minutes through 40 contests.
Teletovic was able to play eight minutes before leaving. He missed all three of his shots, finishing with no points. He added one rebound and one assist during the contest.
Garnett is likely just receiving a night of rest after playing Tuesday, as he did during the second half of his team's last back-to-back Saturday.
