Cuttino Mobley Undergoing Further Tests for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

According to a source close to Mobley, he insisted on seeing Dr. Maron after he failed his Knicks’ physical because of an unlarged heart.

Mobley, obtained two weeks ago from the Clippers, was expected to meet with Knicks president Donnie Walsh today but that has been pushed back to next week until all the test results on his heart can be gathered. The source could not confirm Mobley took a DNA test, just that he underwent tests with Dr. Maron.

One source said Mobley has mulled taking a medical retirement, depending on the results of the series of heart tests. However because this was a preexisting condition it is unclear if he has the standard insurance stipulations in his contract. Mobley has seen at least two other specialists before Maron. It has been reported Mobley signed a waiver with the Clippers, absolving them of liability.
