According to multiple reports Clippers owner Donald Sterling has Cancer.
The New York Post reported Thursday that Sterling has been battling cancer for some time, citing multiple sources.
Further specifics are not yet available, and neither Sterling nor his representatives have publicly confirmed the diagnosis.
Members of the Clippers said they were unaware of the diagnosis following their 100-99 loss to the Warriors in Game 6 on Thursday.
“I hope it’s not true,” said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat.
“If that is true, my thoughts and prayers are with him,” Blake Griffin said, according to the Los Angeles Times. “Nobody deserves to go through something like that.”
Chris Paul added that the reported news was “truly unfortunate.”
The league’s 10-member advisory committee held its first meeting about Sterling Thursday and agreed to move swiftly on the process of terminating Sterling’s ownership.
