Ingram expected to miss remainder of season

  • Report: Lakers Sign 33-Year-Old Andre Ingram to 10-Day Contract from South Bay Lakers

Their diagnosis of a deep vein thrombosis in his right arm runs Ingram the risk of blood clotting, or perhaps even worse if the ailment isn't handled with care.

Ingram is averaging a career-high 18.3 points on 49.7 percent shooting across 52 appearances.

Further tests on Friday revealed the diagnosis.

Ingram has appeared in 35 games (13 starts) for Los Angles' G-Leauge affiliate, the South Bay Lakers, this year.

Ball wasn't the only Laker that was ruled out for the rest of the season on Saturday.

"They have to rebuild this roster right?" said Van Gundy. Ingram's DVT puts a halt to his season and any efforts to trade him for a star, which hamstrings the Lakers' ability to make moves this summer.




The Lakers are 15-8 with James, Ball and Ingram all in their lineup, but they've largely struggled whenever one of the trio is out.

The most recent example of blood clots affecting a National Basketball Association career is Chris Bosh, who first discovered his in leg in 2015.

"Luke Walton wouldn't answer any questions about Brandon Ingram other than to say he's out for the season". Bosh had to retire due to blood clotting issues. He suffered the Grade 3 sprain at Houston on January 19, then he had a bone bruise that slowed his recovery.

Ingram will join the Lakers on their upcoming five-game road trip, according to Lauren A. Jones.

Ball should have a normal offseason for the first time.

Van Gundy outlined the idea of sending James to the Clippers to free up cap space, which would then allow the Lakers to go after Kevin Durant, Anthony Davis and/or Kawhi Leonard. Last summer, Ball stayed off an injured knee to let it heal, only to have to undergo surgery later to fix a torn meniscus and not be able to use the offseason to work on his game.
