Arvydas Sabonis in Stable Condition Following Heart Attack


The Hall of Fame big man suffered a heart attack yesterday, but Arvydas Sabonis seems to have escaped the danger zone. From the Oregonian: “Portland Trail Blazers legend Arvydas Sabonis suffered a heart attack while playing basketball Tuesday night in his native Lithuania, but his condition is not believed to be life threatening. Sabonis was taken to a hospital for emergency medical care and is expected to remain there for at least one week, according to international web site Sportalas.com. ‘Our thoughts are with Arvydas and his family at this time,’ the Blazers said in a prepared statement. ‘We wish him well in a speedy recovery.’”
