No Jazz players have offseason operations planned. Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, however, does.
Sloan will soon undergo right knee-replacement surgery.
"Hopefully Thursday," he said.
He's needed the procedure for some time now, and coached throughout the season with a joint so painful it often hurt just to get out of his seat.
Sloan — 67, and under contract for one more year — on Tuesday suggested the medical matter should in no way adversely impact his decision on coaching again next season.
"Surgery won't have anything to do with it — unless something happens that I have to have it taken off," he said jokingly. "I mean, I'd probably not be very able to coach if I had to stand on one leg."
