Ingram expected to miss remainder of season

LeBron James

On Saturday, the team announced that Brandon Ingram is expected to miss the rest of the season after tests revealed a Deep Venous Thrombosis - a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body - in his right arm.

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

Los Angeles Lakers second-year point guard Lonzo Ball has been shut down for the season, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium. "All I'm going to say on him right now is that he's out for the rest of the season".

"The details aren't mine to give", Walton said.

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

He has averaged 18.3 points, 3.0 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 52 games this season.

Lonzo had his left ankle re-evaluated by doctors on Saturday, and the two sides agreed to shut Ball down for the season.

Should Ball progress in his rehabilitation, Walton wouldn't even predict a potential return date for him. He suffered the Grade 3 sprain at Houston on January 19, then he had a bone bruise that slowed his recovery. The Lakers have gone 5-13 since Ball went down, having the worst defense in the National Basketball Association in that time.

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 Lakers now trail the San Antonio Spurs in eighth place in the Western Conference standings by 6.5 games.
