Hornets head coach steps away from team to address health

The Hornets did not disclose Clifford's illness.

Hornets head coach Steve Clifford is taking a leave of absence "to address his health", the team announced Wednesday.

The Hornets didn't give any further specifics out of respect for Clifford.

Clifford missed Monday's game against the Orlando Magic, which the team won 104-94 with Silas at the helm.


The Hornets (9-13) are third in the Southeast Division, three games behind Washington. 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.

Silas has been a longtime assistant in the National Basketball Association, coaching for the Hornets/New Orleans Pelicans (2000-03), Cleveland Cavaliers (2003-05), Golden State Warriors (2006-10) and the Charlotte Bobcats/Hornets (2010-present). We're all hoping that the 56-year-old Clifford has a quick recovery.

The Hornets did not provide any additional details on the situation.

An indefinite timetable to return invites speculation about Clifford's health, and his status going forward.
