Basketball: LA Lakers owner in hospital for cancer
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss has been admitted to hospital for cancer treatment, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
The 79-year-old, who has been in failing health for the past year, was taken to hospital in July for "dehydration" and underwent surgery a month later for an undisclosed illness. He has also suffered from blood clots.
The LA Times report said Buss had spent time in intensive care.
It was not clear what form of cancer Buss is fighting and the Lakers did not immediately respond to requests for a comment.
