Derrick Coleman Suffering From Heart Arrythmia

Posted by TSUE on May 2, 2008

Derrick Coleman was hospitalized two weeks ago because of an irregular heart beat that began to plague him toward the end of his 10-year NBA career. At the moment he does not need to have a heart transplant according to his wife a former Nets executive. It may be a possibility down the road but for now his doctors are managing the condition. Their plan is to implant a defibrillator and monitor the results.

Coleman played at Syracuse University from 1986 to 1990 and still ranks second on the school’s all-time scoring list and first in rebounds. He was the No. 1 pick in the 1990 NBA Draft and played 15 pro seasons for the New Jersey Nets, Philadelphia 76ers, Charlotte Hornets and Detroit Pistons.

For now Derrick is not in immediate danger which is a good sign.  With the help of his family and friends I believe he will be just fine.
