Former Georgetown guard Chris Wright may have multiple sclerosis and could be forced to retire from professional basketball.

Chris Wright played guard for the Georgetown Hoyas for four seasons, from 2007 to 2011, and often dealt with injuries during his career in the NCAA but still finished up ranking sixth all-time in the Hoyas record books for assists. Wright didn't get a chance to play in the NBA, but he was able to use his basketball skills overseas in the Turkish Basketball League.

Back in August of 2011 Wright signed a deal with the Olin Edirne of the Turkish Basketball League, but in an unfortunate turn of events, Wright's professional basketball career may come to a quick end. Wright is thought to potentially have MS, or multiple-sclerosis, and could be forced to retire from professional basketball according to a report out of EuroSport.com.

Geçen hafta ayak bileğindeki ağrıdan şikayetçi olan Wright, daha sonra da sağ tarafında ağrılardan söz etti. Sağ tarafında his azalması olduğunu belirtmesi üzerine İstanbul'a götürülen talihsiz basketbolcunun tedavisi olmayan "MS" hastalığına yakalandığı açıklandı.

Loosely translated from Turkish using Google Translator, Wright was complaining about pain in his ankle and up the right side of his body. The team sent Wright to Istanbul to get further evaluated and it was determined that he may have MS.
