Nick Gilbert, the son of Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, will reportedly undergo “major” brain surgery.
According to Chris Manning of SB Nation’s Fear The Sword, ESPN’s Doris Burke said as much during Sunday’s broadcast of the Cavaliers’ game against the Boston Celtics. The surgery is set for this upcoming week.
Jay Greene of Crain’s wrote in November that Nick has neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder that causes tumors on his brain.
Nick, who Greene noted attends Michigan State, has 25 percent vision in his left eye and cannot see out of his right. He first underwent chemotherapy at five years old and had emergency surgery to remove a tumor from his brain at 10.
