Nathan Jawai : scary news of heart irregularity

A Stern Warning has a brand new site!! Click the logo or go to http://www.asternwarning.com

Somewhat scary news has come to light as Nathan Jawai has been held out of Toronto Raptors training camp after a heart irregularity came to light in routine screenings done at the team facility.

Training camp is due to start today, Tuesday, in Ottawa, but the big Aussie will not take part as further tests will be performed this week before the Raptors staff allow him to take the court.

Whilst the news is troubling, there may be no reason to panic, but rather it is fortunate that this testing has been performed as a preventative measure ahead of any serious incident for the 6'10" PF/C. It should be noted that LaMarcus Aldridge was held out of action for the Portland Trail Blazers with a similar scare previously, which was diagnosed and he was allowed to continue playing. New York Knick Eddy Curry has also had heart problems diagnosed which have not inhibited his play.

Here's wishing all of the best for the former Cairns Taipan from far north Queensland.
