Brandon Ingram injury: Lakers majorly concerned over severity of blood clot issue

Brandon Ingram injury: Lakers majorly concerned over severity of blood clot issue

Nearly certainly, no. But trading LeBron James is a thought ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy floated Saturday during Los Angeles' latest loss, its fifth straight, this one at home to Boston, 120-107.

The Miami Heat legend was first diagnosed with blood clot issues in February 2015, with the issue reaching one of his lungs.

Ingram had a rousing 19-point debut in his first National Basketball Association game and shot an excellent 47.1 percent from distance in his two lone games at the end of the Lakers' 2017-18 campaign.

Ingram's professional career included stops with the now-defunct Utah Flash of the G League, seven seasons with the South Bay Lakers, and a year in Australia with the Perth Wildcats.

With the Lakers' season fading as they fall further out of playoff contention, the organization will play it safe with its young prospects. Their playoff chase is now a distant memory, and LeBron James is being put on minutes restrictions while Brandon Ingram (blood clot in shoulder) and Lonzo Ball (ankle) are both out for the rest of the year. And for us, when we played him in the short games, he spaced the floor for us.

Ball should have a normal offseason for the first time.

This version of the Lakers was not going to be a force in the postseason and the team was already turning its attention to this summer.

Fortunately, once detected, DVT is very treatable with blood thinning medication, and Ingram will undoubtedly receive great care in getting himself healthy.

The Lakers hope that Ball, 21, will be able to heal fully and have time to work on his game this offseason.

Andre Ingram will get another chance with the Lakers.
