DETROIT, MI (WOIO) -

The son of Cleveland Cavaliers majority owner Dan Gilbert underwent another brain surgery in Detroit this past week, and according to Gilbert, the operation was a success.

Nick Gilbert, 21, was born with neurofibromatosis, a nerve disorder that causes tumors to grow anywhere within the body.

He had surgery to remove a brain tumor a decade ago, and is treated off and on with chemotherapy.

Nick was hospitalized last week due to complications from the latest tumor.

After practice Monday, coach Tyronn Lue said players and coaches sent a video to "Gillie," wishing him good luck and a speedy recovery.
