Lakers Owner Dr. Jerry Buss in Hospital for Cancer Treatment – Eric Spillman Reports

LOS ANGELES — Lakers owner Jerry Buss has an undisclosed form of cancer and is in the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, according to several people familiar with the situation.

“He’s doing fine,” Buss’ son Jim told The Times in a brief interview Thursday. “We just aren’t going to make any comments on it. We’ve been dealing with this.”

Buss, 79, has not attended any games this season after being a fixture in his luxury suite halfway up the arena behind the Lakers’ bench.
