Nick Gilbert undergoes successful surgery


CLEVELAND

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert says his son Nick survived eight hours of brain surgery.

Gilbert posted on Twitter that 21-year-old Nick was recovering after the operation on a tumor. The younger Gilbert was born with neurofibromatosis, a genetic nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow anywhere in the body.

Dan Gilbert said Nick’s first question after the surgery was whether the Cavaliers won in Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. The Cavs defeated the Thunder 120-112 in their final game before the All-Star break.
