Lakers’ Ingram out for season with deep venous thrombosis

In 47 games this season, the former second overall pick averaged 9.9 points, 5.4 assists, and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc.

Ingram was diagnosed with DVT upon further testing by the team's medical staff on Friday.

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Ingram, now 33, will join the team in Chicago for the first game of a five-game road trip.

On Thursday, coach Luke Walton said Ingram was experiencing pain whenever he lifted his right arm. Kyle Kuzma (ankle) has missed the last two games but was a full participant in practice on Monday, and the Lakers will see how Kuzma is feeling before the Bulls game. With James the rest of the season the Lakers are 24-24. "But it is where we are at right now as a group and it is our job to continue to come out and give everything we can to get better to win what games we do have left", Walton said.

Blood clots have affected several prominent athletes including Chris Bosh and Serena Williams in recent years.

The Clippers - who were on the end of back-to-back games - led for most of the first 30 minutes before the Trail Blazers went on an 11-3 run to go up 75-68 with 4:55 remaining in the third quarter. And Josh Hart continues to play despite a knee injury that has been ailing him for a few months.

The good news is that Ball is expected to make a healthy recovery sooner rather than later and likely won't need surgery, which wasn't the case last season. "They'll get an opportunity to learn, and I get an opportunity to play with them, so we can take that out of it for sure".

"I knew if I was going to dunk, I might be out the next game". Facing the Lakers on March 12 at the United Center is the Chicago Bulls, also one of the NBA's most storied franchises, who will be looking to shut down those playoff hopes once and for all. The trio has not been on the court together since Christmas Day.

Ball injured his ankle at Houston, and the initial timetable for his recovery given by the team was four to six weeks.
