Cleveland Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller was diagnosed with acute appendicitis Friday and had an appendectomy at the Cleveland Clinic, the team announced.
Zeller is recovering at the clinic after the successful procedure and will undergo a period of additional recovery and re-evaluation before a timetable is established for his return to basketball activity.
The surgery caused Zeller to miss Friday's preseason game against the Detroit Pistons.
