Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram underwent thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm Saturday, and sources told ESPN he is expected to make a full recovery in three to four months.

Ingram was shut down last week after a medical examination of his sore right shoulder revealed deep venous thrombosis — a condition caused by a blood clot. That clot was removed and Saturday’s procedure assured better blood flow in Ingram’s upper body.
