Former NBA All-Star Cedric Ceballos tweeted Tuesday, September 7, that he’s in his 10th day in an intensive care unit battling COVID-19.

“On my 10th day in ICU, COVID-19 is officially kicking my but (sic),” Ceballos tweeted, asking for prayers for his recovery. “If I have done and anything to you in the past, allow me to publicly apologize. My fight is not done.”

Ceballos averaged 14.3 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in an 11-year career with five teams, most notably the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns, with whom Ceballos played two different times (1990-1994, 1996-1998). 

The Suns selected Ceballos in the second round of the 1990 draft out of Cal State Fullerton.

Ceballos made the All-Star team in 1994-1995 while with the Lakers. He averaged a career-high 21.7 points per game to go with 8.0 rebounds. He played two-plus seasons with the Lakers. –
