Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is reportedly battling cancer.

ESPN.com confirmed a report broken by the New York Post late Thursday night that the 80-year-old has had prostate cancer for some time.

The news comes just two days after Sterling was banned for life from the NBA and fined $2.5 million for racist comments he made in a taped conversation with his girlfriend.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is in the process of rallying the league's 29 other team owners to force a sale of the Clippers, the next step in removing Sterling entirely from the League.

"If that is true, my thoughts and prayers are with him," Clippers power forward Blake Griffin told ESPN.com after the team's Game 6 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. "Nobody deserves to go through something like that."
