Chicago Bulls: 3 reasons pursuing LeBron James works

Chicago Bulls: 3 reasons pursuing LeBron James works

Ingram was diagnosed with Deep Venous Thrombosis in his right arm.

The Duke product averaged a career-best 18.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season, but he had thrived since the All-Star break, averaging 27.8 points and 57 percent shooting in six games.

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton confirmed Andre Ingram will sign a 10-day contract and join the team on their five-game road trip that begins Tuesday against the Chicago Bulls.

This season has had little to celebrate for Lakers fans, but at least a familiar face in one of the good guys of the organization should bring Lakers faithful something to cheer for at the end of this otherwise lost 2018-19 campaign. And for us, when we played him in the short games, he spaced the floor for us.

Blood clots have affected several prominent athletes including Chris Bosh and Serena Williams in recent years. Their playoff chase is now a distant memory, and LeBron James is being put on minutes restrictions while Brandon Ingram (blood clot in shoulder) and Lonzo Ball (ankle) are both out for the rest of the year. If Ingram is still off the practice court come early August, the Lakers may miss their opportunity to include him in trade talks, causing them to lose out on AD or other stars.

On Saturday while the Lakers were in the process of losing to the Celtics, ESPN's Jeff Van Gundy floated the idea that LA should go so far as to trade James. Along with that, the Laker is also dealing with a bone bruise. Once Ball is given medical clearance to resume basketball activities, he can start preparing for his first fully healthy NBA offseason. A year ago he dealt with a knee injury and was unable to get much work done during the offseason. LeBron missed extended time and the youth the Lakers have touted have not taken the necessary leaps - and they were not enough to pry Anthony Davis from the Pelicans at the trade deadline.
