Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune reports that Portland Trail Blazers PA Announcer and local radio personality Mark Mason is on the mend after a serious condition sidelined him last Tuesday. Mason experienced blood clots after the failure of an artery stent from a previous procedure.
Eggers offers more details in the article before sharing the outlook for Mason's professional future:
Mason isn't sure when he'll return to either the radio or PA jobs. He's thankful to be alive, and to have received support from friends and Blazer fans via Facebook and Twitter.
