PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland Trail Blazers radio play-by-play man Brian Wheeler will only call home games for the rest of the regular season due to ongoing health issues, the team announced Monday.

Scott Lynn will call the team’s nine remaining road games. Lynn filled in for Wheeler earlier in the season while Wheeler took a leave of absence due to health.

“My health is progressing in a positive direction, but there’s still more work to be done,” said Wheeler in a news release from the Blazers. “The Trail Blazers and our wonderful fans in Rip City have been very supportive, which means so much to me.”

The Blazers have 22 games left in the regular season.
