BOSTON -- Celtics general manager Danny Ainge is out of the hospital after having a minor heart attack.

Ainge attended the team's shootaround Monday morning one day after being released from Massachusetts General Hospital. He was admitted there Thursday and underwent surgery. The 50-year-old Ainge did not speak with reporters Monday.

The Celtics lost to the Chicago Bulls 105-103 in overtime Saturday in the opener of their first-round playoff series. Game 2 is Monday night.

Ainge is in his sixth season in Boston's front office. He was a guard on two Celtics championship teams in the 1980s and was an NBA all-star in 1988.
