Lakers Owner Jerry Buss Hospitalized With Blood Clots

by December 08, 2011

The Lakers say that their team owner’s hospitalization is not too big a deal, and that he should be back to work soon. From the LA Times: “Lakers owner Jerry Buss has been hospitalized at an undisclosed location because of blood clots in his leg caused by excessive travel, a team spokesman said Wednesday. ‘He’s doing well and expects to be released in the next day or two,’ Lakers publicist John Black said. Buss, who turns 78 next month, has been traveling overseas and domestically in recent weeks. He will probably attend the Lakers’ exhibition opener Dec. 19 against the Clippers at Staples Center. ‘We would expect so,’ Black said.”
