Former Portland Trail Blazers star Clifford Robinson announced via the team today that he is currently recovering from a minor brain hemorrhage. On March 8, news broke that he was in the hospital for unknown reasons. Four days ago, a former coach said that Robinson was recovering.

Robinson, 50, was drafted by the Blazers in 1989 and played eight seasons with the team, including Portland’s 1990 and 1992 Western Conference championship teams. He averaged 16.2 points and 5.2 rebounds over his Blazer career. He represented Portland in the 1994 NBA All-Star Game.
Robinson currently seems to be active on social media. He reacted with a “like” to our Tweet to him earlier today. If you’d like to send him well-wishes, Twitter seems to be a good option.
Get well soon @UncleCliffy30! https://t.co/xk8SMK15hW— Blazer's Edge (@blazersedge) March 14, 2017
