Cooper rejoins Dream in limited coaching role

ATLANTA (AP) — Coach Michael Cooper is rejoining the Atlanta Dream in a limited role for Sunday's game against the New York Liberty, 10 days after he underwent surgery for tongue cancer. The team says Cooper wanted to show his support for Atlanta's "Dream Pink" game, which will include recognition of breast cancer survivors. His duties are subject to a doctor's approval. It's not known if Cooper will accompany the team on a weeklong, four-game road trip that begins Tuesday at Phoenix. The 58-year-old Cooper issued a statement thanking all his friends and fans for their support and says, "I am excited to get back to coaching." His physician, Dr. J. Trad Wadsworth, says Cooper is doing well and should make a full recovery.
