INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 7, 2016)- The Boston Celtics announced Brad Stevens will miss their game in Chicago on Thursday night against the Bulls.

Stevens is making a trip to Indiana to reportedly visit his former player Andrew Smith. Smith has been battling cancer for the past two years and recently the family has asked for increased prayer.

Smith is currently in the hospital fighting non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Smith’s wife Samantha tweeted on Wednesday that Smith was asking everyone to pray after he was readmitted to the hospital.

Smith’s father also made a plea on Twitter asking that people “pray for a miracle.”
