Lakers owner Jerry Buss hospitalized

Jerry Buss, the Lakers’ longtime owner, has been hospitalized because of blood clots in his legs likely caused by extensive traveling, a team spokesman said this evening. “He is doing well and is expected to be released in the next day or two,” said John Black, the Lakers’ vice president of public relations. Black declined to say where the 77-year-old Buss was hospitalized or his course of treatment, but Black did not believe Buss had suffered from blood clots in the past. Buss has owned the Lakers since 1979, winning 10 NBA titles.
