The SportsXchange

Hall of Fame basketball player Bill Russell underwent a heart procedure recently, but apparently is in good condition and is on his way to recovery, ESPNBoston.com reported.

Boston Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss relayed a message to ESPNBoston.com from Russell's business manager, Stuart Layne, saying Russell is up and about and feeling better each day.

On Monday, former New York Post columnist Peter Vecsey had tweeted that Russell had two heart procedures, which prevented him from traveling from Seattle to Long Island for an golf event.
