LeBron James nearly traded by Lakers owner Jeanie Buss report

Head to head, the under is 6-2 in the last eight meetings, the Lakers are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings in Toronto and the Lakers are 0-5 ATS in the last five meetings overall.

The Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball has been sidelined for the remainder of the season to get back to full recovery.

Andre Ingram salutes the Los Angeles crowd in the Under Armour Curry 3.

A deep venous thrombosis is a condition caused by a blood clot, frequently accompanied by swelling and pain in a limb.

Jeff Van Gundy suggested during a recent broadcast that the Los Angeles Lakers need to consider the possibility of trading LeBron James this summer, and he is not the only one who feels that way.

Post-All-Star break, James returned to action but was reportedly playing at a much heavier weight than he was accustomed to throughout his career (around 280 pounds).

This season, Ball averaged 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while shooting at 40.6 percent from the floor and 32.9 from three in 30.3 minutes of action. Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, and Hart have been trying to blend in with the three-time National Basketball Association champion and things haven't been going on smoothly.

"We've released what he's got going on, but I'm not going to get into all the details, " Walton said.

The Lakers hope that Ball, 21, will be able to heal fully and have time to work on his game this offseason.

Forward Kyle Kuzma has also been plagued with ankle issues in the latter half of the regular season, missing multiple games in the process.

There's rumors, and then there's this: Bleacher Report's Ric Bucher states a team source says Lakers owner Jeanie Buss contemplated trading LeBron James to terminate the team's relationship with agent Rich Paul because of mishandling of trade talks with the Pelicans and Anthony Davis. "I wouldn't want to gut the team for a player that isn't committed and is toward the end of his career". With Ball's year gone, it remains an open question if he will even be a Laker next year, as the team does everything it can to add another superstar or two to play alongside James. These teams last met on Nov 4 which resulted in a 121-107 win for the Raptors and I'm expecting a similar result as I just can't trust the Lakers these days.
