Hornets head coach Steve Clifford taking leave

Charlotte Hornets' Steve Clifford away from team to address his health Hornets coach Steve Clifford out indefinitely with health concerns
Rita Gibson | 06 December, 2017, 19:51

The Charlotte Hornets announced Wednesday that Steve Clifford would be away from the team "for the immediate future" for health-related reasons. Associate head coach Stephen Silas will take over head coaching duties in his absence.

Silas joined the Hornets as a scout in 1999 when his father, Paul, was head coach. Out of respect for his privacy, the organization did not comment further on his condition. Hopefully, whatever he's going through isn't too severe, and he'll be able to make a swift recovery.

The Hornets did not disclose Clifford's illness.

Hornets head coach Steve Clifford will miss an undetermined amount of time to address his health, the team announced Wednesday.

The Hornets are now 9-13 this season and are in 11th place in the Eastern Conference. Beyond that, he's been an assistant coach in the league nearly steadily since 2000, save for his time as a scout for the Washington Wizards. But the Hornets can't be blamed for not offering specific details at this point.

The Hornets play a home game Wednesday against the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors.
