Wayman Tisdale Has Part of Leg Amputated

NewsOK.com reports on the latest in Wayman Tisdale’s battle with cancer. The former basketball star and chart-topping contemporary jazz bassist had the lower part of his right leg removed on Monday. It’s expected that the surgery will eliminate the disease. Although he’s now resting at his home in Tulsa, he plans on quick rebound. Tisdale wants to get back on tour later this fall and host the Smooth Jazz Cruise in January. “There’s a lot more music inside me,” Tisdale said, “and once I am back on my feet, I look forward to sharing my joy with my fans, friends and fellow musicians.”
