More specifically, Clifford pointed out he will return to the sideline when the Bobcats take on the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 11. The 52-year-old head coach experienced chest pains last Thursday while having dinner and was immediately rushed to a local hospital. 

The very next day, doctors inserted two stents to his heart to prevent blockage, per the Associated Press.

Clifford is happy to report everything has been fine since then.

"I feel fine. I haven't had any pain, even minor pain, since the incident.

"I had significant pain in my chest and I was having trouble breathing. So it was scary enough where I had them call 911. And I was lucky that I did...Once I got to the hospital, I felt good."

Bobcats associate head coach Patrick Ewing, a close friend of Clifford dating back to their days as assistants for the Orlando Magic and Houston Rockets, spoke with the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell during morning shoot-around on the day of the surgery. 

"He just wasn't feeling well so he's at the hospital getting some tests.

"My emotions are all about Cliff and the team. He's a very close friend of mine and I'm worried about his health, safety and well-being. We have a great staff assembled here, so if he does not make it (to the game), the rest of the staff and I will have to carry on." 

The Associated Press report goes on to say that Clifford will follow a health plan which his doctors laid out. The Bobcats mentor also said he will change his eating habits. 

"At least I got a warning signal. Things worked out well. The doctors have me on a good plan and I'm going to follow it. 

"I will have to (change his diet), but it's only been two days and obviously it hasn't shown up yet." 

Clifford is on his first year as Charlotte's head coach. He was an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers last season before he was hired on May 28 to replace Mike Dunlap to call the shots for the Bobcats.
