Utah Jazz Owner Miller Suffers Double Amputation Due to Type 2 Complications

Jan 26, 2009

Larry Miller purchased the Utah Jazz basketball team in 1985. His son, Greg Miller took over as CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group last summer. The group owns the Jazz along with scores of other business ventures.

Utah Jazz owner, Larry H. Miller had his legs amputated six inches below the knee last week. A spokesman for the successful pro basketball team told the Associated Press that the surgery was due to complications from type 2 diabetes. The spokesman noted that Miller was already using a wheelchair before the surgery. Miller is 64 years old.

Miller has dealt with numerous diabetes-realted and other health complications, including ulcers on his feet, kidney failure, and a heart attack.

Miller is doing well and expected to take the next few months to recover.
