New York Knicks legend and current Georgetown head coach Patrick Ewing was diagnosed with COVID-19 late last week. Such diagnosis is a scary one for a man of Ewing's age and all fans could do was hope for the best.
A positive update was finally shared Monday afternoon by Patrick Ewing Jr., who thanked the doctors that treated his dad. He also revealed his father is at home recovering.
This is great news to read after a weekend filled with uncertainty. The sports world has suffered enough loss and never-ending bad news as it is.
Ewing spent much of his pro career with the Knicks and has been coaching at his alma mater since 2017 following a long run as an assistant coach in the NBA. Playing and coaching in major markets has made him a beloved member of the basketball world and at 57 years of age the diagnosis was alarming. Being back at home is a great sign and we wish Ewing the best as he continues to fight this virus.
