Flip Saunders' mother has passed away

Some sad news to report.  Flip Saunders' mother, who has battled illness all season, passed away earlier today as Saunders was in the air rejoining his team.  The head coach announced the news to assembled media at practice earlier today. 

Kay Saunders was 90 years old when she passed away.  Flip Saunders said she was taken off life support earlier this week, but survived for three more days, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Saunders said he would coach the team on Saturday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but will miss the team's game against the Pistons on Sunday as he attends his mother's funeral.  

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Flip Saunders for his loss.
