Tyronn Lue Will Be Taking A Leave Of Absence Due To Health Issues
The Cavaliers have announced that head coach Tyronn Lue will be taking a leave of absence due to health issues.
Assistant coach Larry Drew will take over as the Cleveland Cavaliers interim head coach.
“After many conversations with our doctors and Koby and much thought given to what is best for the team and my health, I need to step back from coaching for the time being and focus on trying to establish a stronger and healthier foundation from which to coach for the rest of the season,” -Tyronn Lue
At the time there is no timetable on when coach Lue will return as the head coach of Cleveland Cavaliers.
I assume Tyronn Lue will be back with the team sometime around the playoffs which will start April 14, 2018. This will give coach Lue close to 4 weeks off to address his health concerns. I say these things optimistically of course with the hope that Tyronn Lue will be back in good health.
