Nick Gilbert Rumors

Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert said in a Tweet his son survived eight hours of brain surgery. Nick Gilbert, 21, underwent the surgery this week to treat a brain tumor. His father said Nick made it through the surgery and 48 hours of rest, but still has “hurdles ahead.”

Lue said the player and coaches made a video Monday to send to Nick Gilbert — son of Cavs owner Dan Gilbert — who will undergo brain surgery this week to treat a tumor. News of the surgery was first reported by ESPN on Sunday. Nick Gilbert, 21, was born with neurofibromatosis, a nerve disorder causing tumors to grow anywhere in the body. He had a brain tumor removed more than 10 years ago. “We’re all praying for him and wish him the best,” Lue said. “Hate to see a young guy go through that, let alone anyone, but being so young and having so much spirit that he has is great.”
