Nuggets coach Karl remains hospitalized

DENVER – Nuggets coach George Karl remains hospitalized with complications from his battle with throat cancer.

Karl experienced swelling in his left knee while being treated for a blood clot in his right leg, Karl’s partner, Kim Van Deraa, told the team’s website Tuesday.

She said Karl, 58, probably won’t be released until Wednesday after doctors drained the knee and checked for infection.

Karl completed a six-week treatment of chemotherapy and radiation for throat and neck cancer a month ago. He’s been hospitalized twice for blood clots, the last time on Friday.
