Reports: Clippers owner Donald Sterling battling prostate cancer

Banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is battling prostate cancer, according to ESPN and the New York Post reports.

This, after Sterling was banned from the NBA earlier this week for making racist comments in a taped conversation with his girlfriend.

The leagueâ??s advisory/finance committee met Thursday to get the process going on forcing Sterling to sell the team.

The ten-member committee unanimously agreed to move forward with the attempt to force Sterling to sell the Clippers and therefore cut all ties with the NBA.
