Lakers owner Jerry Buss hospitalized with blood clots in leg

Buss

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 probably will attend the Lakers' exhibition opener Dec. 19 against the Clippers at Staples Center.

"We would expect so," Black said.

The Lakers open the regular season Dec. 25 against Chicago at Staples Center. 

Buss' hospitalization was first reported by TMZ.com.
