Cavs’ Wagner diagnosed with intestinal problem

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dajuan Wagner has
been diagnosed with an inflamed large intestine and will remain in the
hospital.

Wagner was hospitalized Monday after missing two games with intestinal flu. He
will be sidelined indefinitely and is not expected to join the team when it
travels to Los Angeles to begin a six-game road trip Thursday.

Since joining Cleveland, Wagner has sustained a series of medical problems
dating back to his rookie season in 2002-03. He missed 35 games during that
campaign, including his first 14 due to surgery for a bladder infection. Last
season, Wagner was limited to just 44 games because of knee surgery as well as
an inflamed liver and pancreas.

In 11 games this season, Wagner is averaging four points while shooting 33
percent from the floor. A native of Camden, New Jersey, Wagner posted 13.4
points per contest in 2002-03 to go along with 1.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists.
