The Los Angeles Lakers will be without one of their best players for the rest of the year.
Brandon Ingram will undergo treatment for a Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) in his arm, and miss the remainder of the season. The Lakers announced the injury in an official release.
According to Healthline.com, DVT is a blood clot that forms deep in a vein in the body. It is a serious condition that usually occurs, but is not limited to, the legs.
Former NBA All-Star Chris Bosh’s career was cut short by issues relating to blood clots.
As his season is over, the second pick in the 2016 NBA Draft put up some of his best number this year.
Ingram will end his third year in the NBA with averages of 18.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3 assists. In 52 games, he shot 49.7 percent from the floor and 33 percent from three.
