ATLANTA — Atlanta Dream coach Michael Cooper has early stage tongue cancer and has taken a leave from the WNBA team.
He will have surgery this week at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University in Atlanta and a full recovery is expected, the Dream said Monday.
The 58-year-old coach is expected to miss about two weeks, with assistant coach Karleen Thompson filling in. Atlanta plays at Minnesota on Tuesday.
