Nets forward Mirza Teletovic left a game last week, went to a hospital and was diagnosed with multiple blood clots on his lungs.

Thankfully, doctors have that scary-sounding condition under control.

Nets release:

The following is a statement from Brooklyn Nets Team Physician Dr. Michael Farber:

“Mirza was diagnosed with pulmonary embolus on January 22 and started on the appropriate medications for this condition. Diagnostic testing was arranged and he was then observed until testing showed that he reached the expected therapeutic range. We are pleased to say that he reports no symptoms at this time and that he will be discharged to return home today.”

“This was a true collaborative effort between our medical team and training staff and the local physicians at the Los Angeles hospital where Mirza was treated. I am really pleased with how Mirza has progressed. We will evaluate him upon return, personally review all of the testing he had done, and arrange for further testing if necessary.”

“I expect Mirza to make a full recovery.”

In time, we’ll see whether Teletovic returns to the basketball court. He’s still out for the rest of the season.

For now, the last line of that statement is a winner.
