Lakers: Forward Brandon Ingram is expected to be ready for next season after undergoing surgery on his right arm. Ingram had thoracic outlet decompression surgery, the Lakers said.
Ingram was declared out for the season earlier this month after he was diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis. A blood clot caused shoulder pain for Ingram, who averaged a career-best 18.3 points and 5.1 rebounds this season.
Heat: When star sixth man Dwyane Wade took a scary, hard fall on a drive to the basket late in the third quarter Friday night against the Bucks and was very slow to get up, the worst could’ve come to mind.
What if Wade, with 14 regular-season games remaining in his “One Last Dance” retirement season, were to miss a significant chunk of those down the final stretch? Or even all of them?
Crisis averted from that standpoint.
“I think Dwyane will be OK. He fell on his hip pretty hard, but he was moving around OK when he came back,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after Friday’s game.
Wade, who played Friday despite entering as questionable with a bruised elbow, reaffirmed: “I’m OK.”
