NBA fans: Can you remember specific instances of varicose veins being mentioned as a risk for tall players?

I'm interested in instances of players talking about it in interviews, getting treatment, and such. I don't really know if such information exists, but since I
-just turned thirty
-got diagnosed with majorly shitty veins yesterday
-am pretty tall,

I'm looking for distraction and maybe comfort by learning of NBA-playing fellow sufferers.

Can't think of an NBA example, but NFL player Matt Birk (6'4") got surgery for varicose veins last summer.
