Brandon Ingram’s diagnosis comes at worst time for player and team

Andre Ingram Los Angeles Lakers Under Armour Curry 3

But further testing revealed Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) in his right arm, ruling him out for the remainder of the season.

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.

Ball suffered a Grade 3 ankle sprain in the Lakers' loss to the Houston Rockets on January 19. Otherwise, the team probably would earn the very public scorn of the league's most influential player and project an even greater image of instability than it already had in recent years, before Lakers icon Magic Johnson was installed as team president with a promise of luring elite players.

Although the Lakers' brass is still holding out for Ingram to return sometime before the season comes to an end, the medical staff isn't exactly hedging their bets on that happening.

Back in management after eight days - Ranieri handed Roma job
Roma reportedly held talks with Sarri before the Carabao Cup final, which the Italian would go on to lose on penalties. He then coached Nantes for a season before taking over at Fulham in November 2018, only to be sacked on February 28.

The 33-year-old became one of the feel-good stories of 2018 when he got the call to sign a contract with the Lakers after a decade in the NBA's developmental league.

According to Second Spectrum data, Ingram averaged 1.15 points per direct isolation play since January 28, when the Anthony Davis trade demand put his future with the Lakers into question. Ingram will also sit out the rest of the year because of a blood clot, which only makes the Lakers situation that much bleaker. Injuries have continued piling up, ruining any real chance the team had to play in the postseason. They are unofficially out of the playoff race, but with Ingram and Lonzo Ball out for the season, Kyle Kuzma nursing an ankle injury of his own and LeBron James having his minutes restricted, it's over.

Ball has been struggling with injuries since the beginning of his National Basketball Association career, as he previously suffered a knee injury during the offseason a year ago. "I'm going to play as hard as I can for however long I can".

There was some mystery behind the reason for Ingram missing the last two games for the Lakers. The trio has not been on the court together since Christmas Day.
