BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) -- Former NBA center Vlade Divac has undergone emergency stomach surgery in Serbia.

Doctors said Saturday in a statement that Divac was admitted to a Belgrade hospital after feeling ''strong pains in his stomach.''

The statement said his life was not threatened. It did not specify his exact health problem.

The 46-years-old Divac, who heads the Serbian Olympic Committee, started and ended his 16-year NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers. From 1989 to 2005 he played for the Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Charlotte Hornets, and was an All-Star in 2001.

I hope he's alright and it's not serious. Prayers to Vlade and his family.

Something about emergency surgery and not life threatening doesn't sound right to me :man3:

Regardless I hope he's okay

He's a tough SOB. He probably flopped, distracted the cause of the pain, and allowed docs to quickly fix the problem. :jam2:

He'll be back to four packs per day before ya know it.

One of the funniest Laker moments was when we found out Vlade smoked something like half a pack of Marleboros at halftimes. Too good.

Gallbladder surgery is one of two outcomes.... easy and quick..... or long and difficult. My sister had a quick surgery (robotic) and she was down for a couple of days and she never had an issue. One of my senior employees had his removed and they nicked a bile duct and he got a significant systemic infection and nearly died. It took him a full year to get completely back on his feet. The statistics show that it's one of the easiest surgeries to have mistakes and significant infection from. One reason my sister opted for the robotic surgery. much smaller incision and much faster healing time.

Hope he's OK. To get to the point that it needed to be "emergency" surgery must have been very painful.

Wasn't Vlade working for the Lakers as a international scout or something like that? Is he still working for them?
