AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown will miss the team's next two games after doctors advised him traveling could put him at risk
for complications following recent hip surgery.
Brown will miss Detroit's game at Charlotte on Tuesday night and at Cleveland on Wednesday night. He's expected to return for Friday's home game
The Hall of Fame coach's doctors told him that traveling to the next two games could put him at risk for complications such as blood clots.
Assistant Gar Heard will coach the team in Brown's absence. Heard went 2-3 when Brown missed two weeks earlier this month following the surgery.
Brown returned to the bench last Wednesday when Detroit defeated Minnesota at home. He also coached the Pistons during their brawl-marred game Friday
against Indiana as well as Sunday night's home win over Charlotte.
