Awful news out of Spain where Kyle Kuric's professional squad has announced that he will have emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor.

Spanish team Gran Canaria announced that American player Kyle Kuric will have surgery to remove a brain tumor. The player will have surgery in the next few days. Our thoughts and prayers are with him. Good luck, Kyle.

Meningiomas are a diverse set of tumors arising from the meninges, the membranous layers surrounding the central nervous system. They arise from the arachnoid "cap" cells of the arachnoid villi in the meninges. These tumors usually are benign in nature; however, a small percentage are malignant.

Kuric and his wife, Taraneh, welcomed twins into the world back in August.

Obviously our thoughts are with the Kuric family, and we will be passing along any updates when we get them.
