Jason Terry gives positive health update on fellow Celtics alum Nate Robinson

Former Boston Celtics shooting guard Jason Terry recently gave a promising update on the health and mindset of fellow Celtics alum Nate Robinson. In October, Robinson revealed he’s been receiving treatment for kidney failure. Robinson last played in the NBA in 2016.

In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated’s Landon Buford, Terry gave a positive report on how Robinson is doing of late. “I spoke to Nate the other day” Terry said. “He’s in good spirits. He’s getting treatment, and hopefully one day he’ll be back healthy. That’s what we’re all praying for. He has the support from all his brothers.”

Robinson and Terry both played for the Celtics during the “Big Three” era, though their time in Boston didn’t overlap.

Robinson was with the team from 2009-2011 before a trade to the Oklahoma City Thunder. Terry joined the team in 2012 via free agency.

Following his NBA career, Robinson played professionally in Venezuela and Lebanon. He has also suited up in the BIG3 tournament and tried his hand at boxing.

When Robinson fell ill, he offered an update about his condition.

“I am currently undergoing treatment for Renal Kidney Failure and have been privately dealing with it for the last four years.” Robinson said in a statement. “I’m sharing this now because I want to be the voice for all those who are having trouble speaking about this illness, and come together for a greater cause—our health,”

“I was never a vocal leader on the court. I preferred to lead by example, but now it’s time for me to speak up and help all those affected by or dealing with Kidney Disease.”

Terry isn’t alone in voicing his support for Robinson. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Memphis Grizzlies vice president of basketball operations Tayshaun Prince, and others around the NBA have lent their well-wishes.
