Ingram, the Lakers’ No. 2 pick out of Duke University in 2016, had a condition that was linked to the makeup of his body, rather than the makeup of his blood. “It’s a night and day difference between a hematological issue, or a blood issue however you want to put it, and a structural issue,” Schwartz told ESPN. “This was not related to his blood producing something that would cause blood clots. This was purely structural.”

Ingram was diagnosed with a deep venous thrombosis, or a blood clot, in his arm, a condition that can be life threatening if not properly treated. If a blood clot travels to a person’s lung, it can cause a pulmonary embolism. Ingram had missed two games with a sore shoulder and then was examined by the Lakers’ medical staff on Friday. “I think it just puts everything in perspective,” James said. “At the end of the day we play the game that we love, our league is all about wins and losses and that’s what it’s all about, but when you have something like that happen, you’re able to put those things in perspective and understand how important those things are as well.
