Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball has been shut down for the rest of the season, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk Saturday.

Ball has treated a bone mark that is related to a Grade 3 joint which suffered Jan. 19. The provision was made after he was re-evaluated by a doctor on Saturday.

The report comes just a few hours after the Lakers announced they were closing in on Brandon Ingram for the rest of the season after he was diagnosed with a deep venous thrombosis in his right arm.

Ingram, who is average at the best 18.3 points in the career and 5.1 returns per game this season, had missed the last two matches with a tender right shoulder. Further tests on Friday revealed the diagnosis.

He had started every match this season before the injury.

On Thursday, coach Luke Walton said that Ingram experienced pain when lifting his right arm.

“We” I released what he has been going on, but I won’t go into all the details, “Walton said.” I just understand a lot of it myself. All I have to say about him right now is that he is out for the rest of the season. & # 39; & # 39;

A deep venous thrombosis is a condition caused by blood clots, often followed by swelling and pain in the legs. The condition usually occurs in the legs but may occur in the upper body.

Blood clots have affected several prominent athletes, including Chris Bosh and Serena Williams in recent years. Bosh finally hit himself because of blood problems, but many other athletes have continued to play.

Kyle Kuzma, Laker’s second leading 18.8 points score per game, is also out with a ruined ankle.

Lakers went 15-8 when LeBron James, Ingram and Ball all played this season. However, the team is only 15-27 when at least one did not play, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Trio has not been to the court since Christmas Day.

The Lakers (30-35) are in 10th place in the Western Conference title in their rivalry meeting with Boston on Saturday night.

They track San Antonio by 6.5 matches for the playoffs, which means that James will likely miss the first season since 2005.

The Lakers decision to close the ball was first reported by The Athletic.
