SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller has had outpatient surgery for a bone infection and diabetic ulcers doctors discovered on his foot.
Miller's wife, Gail, told the Deseret News that he will undergo six weeks of IV and hyperbaric chamber therapy for the conditions. The surgery was performed Wednesday.
The 64-year-old Miller had a heart attack this summer. He remained in the hospital for nearly two months because of complications that included kidney failure and gastrointestinal bleeding that required blood transfusions.
Utah Jazz spokeswoman Linda Luchetti told The Associated Press on Friday that Miller's family considers his health a private matter and isn't communicating with team staff about it.
A few weeks ago Miller was hospitalized for nine days for dialysis to remove excess water weight.
Gail Miller said that her husband's health problems are all related to diabetes.
Luchetti said Miller was still scheduled to receive an award from the Salt Lake branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on Friday.

Besides the Jazz, the group owns radio and TV stations, restaurants, car dealerships, movie theaters, advertising and finance firms, sports arenas, a racetrack, a movie production company, ranches, a real estate development company and a minor league baseball team.
