Detroit Pistons assistant coach Bill Bayno underwent successful prostate cancer surgery Tuesday morning in Detroit. Recovery time is expected to take four-to-six weeks. Bayno said that doctors from Henry Ford Health, the club’s official healthcare provider, are optimistic for a full recovery following the surgery.
“I’m disappointed to miss the beginning of the season with the team, but obviously want to take care of my body and I thank Dr. Craig Rogers and his colleagues who are putting me on a solid path to recovery,” said Bayno. “Once I’ve recovered and get the okay from doctors taking care of me – I look forward to getting back on the bench and supporting our Pistons family that has been so great to me.”
