Norichika Aoki (YAK) is scheduled to have his tonsils removed later this month.  Seems he'll also have what sounds like a laser submucosal resection (to treat allergies) and corrective surgery on his nasal bone.

Said Aoki, "My tonsils would flair up and then I'd get a fever or a headache.  My nose was stuffy a lot, making me breath through my mouth instead of my nose.  And that caused the tonsil flair ups.  I'll be taking care of all of that so I can focus more on playing.
