Some really good news on Tex Winter following his stroke. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers, Lakers Nation!

O.C. Register: Tex Winter continues to progress and could be removed from the intensive care unit Monday. The Laker consultant suffered a stroke Saturday while in Kansas. Coach Phil Jackson, a long-time friend of Winter, 87, said the hope is Winter will be able to leave the hospital by the end of this week.

Also, ESPN had this to say about his condition…

ESPN: The assessment today is some of his faculties are coming back and he’s improving,” Jackson said Sunday at the Lakers’ suburban practice gym. Jackson said he heard Winter would be moved out of intensive care on Monday, spend a few more days in the hospital and then be moved to a care unit that specializes in rehabilitating stroke victims.

    Why is Joe Dumars in the the hall of fame? the man that didnt draft Carmelo Antony or Dwane Wade and is responsible for destroying what use to be a good piston team. I know hes in the hall of fame as a player but come on…. Tex should be in the hall of fame. The man who created the triangle offense which won 9 hopefully 10 championships. Get well Tex your a good person!!!
