Lonzo Ball (knee) will not return for the Lakers until after the All-Star break. Ball went through part of Tuesday's practice and "looked good," but L.A. will play it safe since he still felt "a little bit of discomfort." This also makes it unlikely that Ball will play in the Rising Stars game during All-Star weekend, but coach Luke Walton added that it's not his decision to make. Josh Hart and Isaiah Thomas should soak up Ball's minutes in L.A.'s upcoming back-to-back set.

Lonzo Ball (knee) was a limited participant in Monday's practice. This is another step in the right direction for Ball, as he did everything in practice except the contact portion. The Lakers will practice again on Tuesday and will see how he feels before determining his status for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans. Even with Isaiah Thomas around, the Lakers have made it very clear that Ball is the starter, but we could see a lot of two-PG lineups.

Lonzo Ball (knee) will not play vs. the Thunder on Thursday. He's almost certainly not going to make it back before the All-Star break as he recovers from an MCL sprain. Josh Hart has been the star of the show and should be owned in standard leagues as we head into the deadline.

The Lakers are being very cautious with Lonzo Ball's knee injury and it sounds like we may not see him again before the All-Star break. "We’re not going to rush him back," Luke Walton said. "Let’s say he’s ready to play … the last game (before the break, Feb. 15 in Minnesota) … At that point we’d probably say let’s give him an extra week and get him back afterwards." Ball also reportedly felt some pain in the knee recently and it feels like the Lakers aren't going to put him on the court until he's 100 percent pain free. If Josh Hart is still available in your league, go ahead and add him if you have room.

Luke Walton said that while Lonzo Ball (knee) was still limited to non-contact work during Monday's practice, "he got a little more aggressive." To be clear, Ball will not play Tuesday vs. the Suns, and he won't be allowed to return to the court until he gets in a full-contact practice, but he does appear to be making small steps in the right direction. Josh Hart has played well as a starter over the past two games, so he's someone to think about streaming, and Jordan Clarkson will continue to see an uptick in usage with the second unit.

Lonzo Ball (left knee) is listed as out on the injury report for Tuesday's game vs. Phoenix. This was expected, as Ball was unable to practice with the team on Monday. Josh Hart has started each of the past two games for the Lakers and has posted double-doubles in each contest. Hart is averaging 14.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 37.0 minutes over those two games. He's worth consideration as a streamer or DFS punt on Tuesday, assuming the Lakers confirm Ball is not playing.
