Pistons coach Lawrence Frank back with team after tending to ill wife
Pistons coach Lawrence Frank was back with his team Monday after missing six games dealing with his wife's serious health issue.
"She had to have major surgery and it'll be a long recovery," Frank said after morning shoot-around before a game against the Brooklyn Nets. "It was critical that I had to be there for my wife and kids. It's a helpless feeling."
He wouldn't divulge many details, but with his wife in New Jersey and his two young daughters there, it was a no-brainer to step away from the team to be there for his family. He admitted it was difficult to step back away from his family, but said his goal was to get his wife, Susan, out of the hospital and back home, at the very least.
