ESPN and the New York Post report that banished Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been battling prostate cancer for some time. The 80-year-old Sterling was given a lifetime ban by Adam Silver this week after recorded conversations surfaced featuring Sterling making several racially insensitive comments to his girlfriend, whom his wife is suing.

The NBA advisory committee voted Thursday to pursue Adam Silver's recommendation to engage termination of ownership procedures for the Clippers and Sterling.
