That is LA out of the Anthony Davis sweepstakes.

No way New Orleans goes for Ingram with this uncertainty over his health muddying the waters. And LA doesn't have enough to get into the conversation without Ingram headlining the deal.

As soon as I heard the term "venous" it doesn't sound good. Just has to do with the blood in his body.

And yeah, it sounds nasty. Hope the guy recovers. He's been playing well this year. Could it also be physically related to how tall and skinny/thin he looks out on the court?

Wish Ingram all the best and that this is just a one time thing that doesn't derail his life dreams. But if it is more serious and he can't play basketball anymore, I hope he has been wise with his money and that he is able to do something else with his life that makes like fulfilling to him.

No.

is it an injury or heritable from his folks ?

It can be genetic. As far as weight, obesity is a risk factor. As is inflammation, so I imagine the Lakers and their medical team are probably trying to figure out if the DVT initiated pain and inflammation in the shoulder or if he might have overworked the shoulder leading to inflammation that caused the DVT.

This happened to me and led to me stopping basketball (all contact sports all together). If itís genetic and he needs blood thinners forever, itís too risky to play. Playing sports while on blood thinners can cause fatal internal bleeding.

Heís out about a year regardless because he will be on blood thinners because the first year is the largest risk of another clot. Most doctors will recommend at least 1 year of it even if it isnít genetic.

Feel free to ask me any questions. Iíve been through it.

That's horrible.  Sorry to hear it.   Can you still do cardio stuff like running/swimming?

Yeah, even tennis (as long as itís fairly casual). Just no contact sports. I donít have it genetically but since Iím not getting paid millions, I personally called it quits on contact sports.

The risk isnít the intensity of the workout but more so getting a blow (like an elbow) to a vital organ and having internal bleeding while on blood thinners since it reduces your ability to form natural clots.

Itís the blood thinners that are the culprit, and If you have clotting issues genetically, youíll be on them forever. If itís just from injury, heíll be good to go in 6 to 12 months (whenever your blood doc takes you off the thinners). Itís the difference between Bosh and Tyreke.

Wow I was talking with my Lakers friend and his first comment was, "ugh I don't even care anymore. he has no trade value anymore"... like the guy has blood clots which could seriously affect his career and that's your first real thought about all this?? Sad part is though, I'm sure Lebron now feels the same way actually  ::)

Sadly, I see more and more of this type of attitude towards players. They are judged as a monetary entity as well as a basketball player and a person. Not sure when this phenomena began.

Did the advent of reporting player's salaries start this? Did video gaming and fantasy sports, especially money leagues, help to create this attitude? Did the ever increasing costs of being a fan cause it as well?

Not sure of the answers for any of those questions, but I think often, we forget these athletes are people and have their own issues.

I think it sad that any Laker fan would be angry over this because it lowers Ingram's trade value. I can't imagine any Celtic fan was angry over Hayward's contract the day after he got injured last year, which is I think about as equal an example as I can get to relate it.

Yeah, that's really sad to look at things the way your friend does Phantom. Ingram deserves better.

He's actually a really nice guy IRL and passionate about the Lakers. He told me he's just frustrated in general about the Lakers with everything that's going on and he said that Ingram bit in a bit of frustration and felt bad about it afterwards.

There are also Lakers fans who've been upset about Lonzo taking so long to recover but I think now it doesn't matter since they're out of the playoff race.
