Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram will miss the remainder of the season after doctors discovered Deep Venous Thrombosis in his right shoulder, the team announced Saturday.

Ingram had missed the previous two games with a sore shoulder, prompting further medical testing. The examination revealed DVT under Ingram’s arm. DVT occurs when a blood clot develops in one of the deep veins of the body, though it typically is found in the legs, according to the Mayo Clinic. If left untreated, the clot can break loose and travel through the bloodstream into the lungs, resulting in a pulmonary embolism.

Ingram, 21, has averaged 18.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game in the 2018-19 season, his third in the NBA.
