Utah Jazz owner, Larry H. Miller had his legs amputated six inches below the knee last week. A spokesman for the successful pro basketball team told the Associated Press that the surgery was due to complications from type 2 diabetes. The spokesman noted that Miller was already using a wheelchair before the surgery. Miller is 64 years old.
Miller has dealt with numerous diabetes-realted and other health complications, including ulcers on his feet, kidney failure, and a heart attack.
Miller is doing well and expected to take the next few months to recover.
