Fabricio Oberto Diagnosed with Irregular Heartbeat


Spurs forward Fabricio Oberto will miss the first two games of the season after undergoing treatment for an irregular heartbeat.

Oberto told Spurs trainers during practice Tuesday that he felt a fluttering in his heart. A heart test confirmed the abnormal rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation. He underwent a procedure Tuesday night to restore his heart’s normal rhythm.

The Spurs said Oberto will have daily heart tests for the next five days.
