Bullets aide Blair has further tests after chest pains

December 05, 1992|By Alan Goldstein

Washington Bullets assistant coach Bill Blair, who entere Anne Arundel Hospital on Thursday complaining of chest pains, has been transferred to Washington Hospital Center to undergo further tests, a team spokesman said yesterday.

All of the tests Blair underwent Thursday proved negative, team physician Herb Singer said. He will be kept under observation at Washington Hospital this weekend.

The Bullets, who entertain the Indiana Pacers at the Capital Centre tonight, begin a five-game, two week western swing in Sacramento, Calif., Tuesday night. Blair's status for the trip remains uncertain.

Blair has served as a Bullets assistant for the past five years, first under Kevin Loughery, with whom he also worked in Chicago and New Jersey.

A Kentucky native, Blair played and coached at VMI and later directed the University of Colorado to three straight winning seasons (1978 through 1980).
