Lonzo Ball    G  Lakers

 

 

Lonzo Ball (left knee) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, as expected. Ball was never expected to take the court tonight after sitting out Tuesday's practice, and with him watching from the sidelines, Tyler Ennis figures to earn another start with more minutes falling to Josh Hart and Jordan Clarkson. The Lakers take on the Pacers on Friday, and for now, we'll be considering Ball questionable for that one.

Ball (knee) will not play during Wednesday's contest against the Thunder, Bill Oram of The Orange County Register reports. This is nothing unexpected, as Ball was listed as doubtful heading into morning shootaround. In his stead, Tyler Ennis and Jordan Clarkson will likely handle most of the point guard duties.

Lonzo Ball (knee) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Thunder. Ball wasn't able to practice on Tuesday and head coach Luke Walton said he didn't expect Ball to be able to get out there on Wednesday night, so the doubtful tag confirms the obvious. Tyler Ennis figures to earn another start on Wednesday if Ball sits, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Josh Hart and Jordan Clarkson.

Ball (knee) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports. With Ball's absence from practice Tuesday, all signs are pointing to the rookie missing his second straight game with a left knee sprain. Should Ball miss Wednesday's game in Oklahoma City, Tyler Ennis would be in line to get the start at point guard once again with both Jordan Clarkson and Gary Payton II filling in off the bench.

Ball (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Bill Oram of The Orange County Register reports. As expected, Ball will be held out of Monday's contest with a left knee sprain. Tyler Ennis should be in line to get the start at point guard in the rookie's absence. Given that the injury is being described as minor, there's a solid chance Ball could return for Wednesday's against the Thunder.

Lonzo Ball (sprained left knee) will not play vs. Memphis on Monday. L.A. is erring on the side of caution, predictably, but it doesn't sound serious and an MRI has already ruled out structural damage. His absence opens up the backcourt for Tyler Ennis, Josh Hart and Jordan Clarkson, and maybe we'll even see Gary Payton II in the rotation tonight. Owners should consider Ball questionable for Wednesday's game in OKC.

Ball (knee) is unlikely to play in Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports. While Ball's knee sprain is being considered minor, the Lakers look to be leaning towards taking a cautious approach with the rookie. With Ball on track to be sidelined, Tyler Ennis could return to the starting lineup in his absence, while Jordan Clarkson and Josh Hart could both be in line to see added minutes off the bench.

Luke Walton said it's very unlikely that Lonzo Ball will play through his left knee sprain on Monday. While he hasn't been ruled out, you shouldn't plan on seeing him in action today, as it sounds like there's almost now way he'll play. Josh Hart is probably the best bet for success in Ball's absence, while it should also help Jordan Clarkson and make Tyler Ennis relevant today. Ball should be considered day-to-day until further notice.

Ball had an MRI on Sunday that revealed a minor left knee sprain and is questionable for Monday's game against the Grizzlies. It doesn't appear that the Lakers are very concerned with the rookie's injury, but they could elect to exercise caution with Ball given that he recently returned from a shoulder injury that kept him out for six games. Expect an update on the point guards health following the team's shootaround, as he'll likely be evaluated closely at that time.
