Like the franchise he now belongs to, Doug Kramer will soon rise from the ashes of a mild stroke that had forced him out of action since October.
“Actually, (I’m doing) really good. Basically, I’m not recovering from what happened and I’m just resting,” Kramer said after one of Phoenix’s matchups in late December.
Starting in December, the 33-year-old has been sitting behind the Fuel Masters’ bench during games.
This, after suffering a mild stroke last October 10 and undergoing heart surgery that required him to rest for three to six months.
Since then, Kramer was nothing but glad to share that he has had no hiccups in getting well again. “The tissue has been healing over the device in my heart. Basically, it will heal no matter what,” he said.
Having done exactly what doctors have prescribed, the 10-year veteran feels confident he will be able to get back to action in January. “I’ve been going to training every day. I think, at the end of January, I’ll be joining the team for five-on-five already,” he said.
