Celtics boss Ainge back at work after 'mild' heart attack

BOSTON (AP) Kyrie Irving can opt out of his Celtics contract and become a free agent. Gordon Hayward might never play like he did before his injury. It's possible Brad Stevens won't figure out a way to deploy all of the team's talent.

There's one thing, though, that Boston boss Danny Ainge was able to rule out as he returned to work following his second heart attack: "My role's not going to change."

A 60-year-old former All-Star and NBA executive of the year, Ainge was in Milwaukee for the Celtics' second-round series against the Bucks last month when he suffered what the team described as a "mild" heart attack. Doctors said at the time he was expected to make a full recovery.
