Walton -- Lonzo may not return to Lakers this year

After ending previous year on a high note, Ingram returned to the South Bay Lakers, the G League affiliate of the Los Angeles Lakers, where he is averaging 8.6 points and 2.7 rebounds per game.

Further tests revealed deep venous thrombosis, a condition caused by a blood clot, frequently accompanied by swelling and pain in a limb.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Andre Ingram, the Los Angeles Lakers' feel-good story of late last season, will get a second tour of duty in the National Basketball Association.

Lakers: Coach Luke Walton has not made a decision on if he will rest James in one of the back-to-back games on Thursday and Friday in Toronto and Detroit.

The Lakers sit seven and a half games in back of the eight-seed San Antonio Spurs, and barring a historic collapse by San Antonio, the Lakers will miss the playoffs in a season that once held a ton of promise.

Chelsea-linked Zidane set for Real Madrid return
A major difference between the Real Zidane left and that which he is re-entering is Cristiano Ronaldo no longer being at the club. With the return of Zidane , Real Madrid now have the second most successful coach in their history back at the helm.

The second overall pick in the 2016 draft out of Duke, has also dealt with a groin injury and concussion symptoms this season. "I'm just finding out a lot of it myself". You gotta get on the right timeline. Since the two games he played a year ago on the big club, Ingram has continued on in the G League and is now the league's all-time leader in games played. We go into Toronto our next game.

Walton said he spoke to the Lakers about Ingram's condition, and LeBron James said Ingram was with the Lakers earlier in the day before they played without three injured starters in a 120-107 loss to the Celtics.

The good news is that Ball is expected to make a healthy recovery sooner rather than later and likely won't need surgery, which wasn't the case last season. Five years was a long time with no postseason play. "They'll get an opportunity to learn, and I get an opportunity to play with them, so we can take that out of it for sure".

"Why me? You know, how do you tackle this?" The Lakers recently shut down forward Brandon Ingram and guard Lonzo Ball.

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.
