Lonzo Ball News

Lonzo Ball    G  Lakers

 

 

Ball (knee), who has officially been diagnosed with a minor MCL sprain, got some shots up during Saturday's light practice, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Raptors. While the progress is encouraging, it doesn't seem like Ball has recovered enough to be back in the full swing of things, so he may be trending closer to doubtful for Sunday's contest. Assuming that's the case, Jordan Clarkson will likely continue to be the main beneficiary of the rookie's absence.

Lonzo Ball (knee) was getting shots up at practice on Saturday. He is not expected to play on Sunday against the Raptors. Coach Luke Walton has also said Ball needs to go through a full practice before he's back in the lineup. After Sunday, Ball should be considered between doubtful and questionable on Wednesday in Orlando. Alex Caruso has stepped up the most while Josh Hart and Julius Randle also get more chances.

Ball (knee) is out for Tuesday's contest against the Celtics. Ball will miss his fifth straight game Tuesday. He was seen jogging on a treadmill, however, which is encouraging for his recovery. Regardless, Tyler Ennis, Jordan Clarkson and Alex Caruso are all candidates to continue seeing expanded ballhandling roles as long as Ball remains on the shelf. Caruso notably played 31 minutes Sunday, recording nine points, eight assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Lonzo Ball (knee) is uncertain to play in the upcoming five-game road trip for the Lakers. "I don't expect him back [anytime soon]," coach Luke Walton said. "I haven't seen him on the court doing anything, but they're looking at it, still just taking it day by day to see when the knee is feeling better." Ball is doubtful for Tuesday's home game vs. Boston, and then the Lakers go on the road to face the Bulls, Raptors, Magic, Nets and Thunder. Jordan Clarkson has emerged as the best fantasy pickup in Ball's absence, while Alex Caruso has outplayed Tyler Ennis and could also have some nice value in the short term.

Lonzo Ball (knee) was able to get on the treadmill on Saturday,. But Luke Walton said that is still several steps away from being able to play. He is still not close to a return, but this is a step in the right direction. Ball as been ruled out for Sunday and he is probably not going to play on Saturday either. Expect Tyler Ennis and Alex Caruso to handle the point guard minutes.

Lonzo Ball (knee) did not practice on Saturday and has been ruled out for Sunday against the Knicks. It doesn't sound like he's close and the Lakers will wait for him to go through a full practice before he's back out there. The Lakers next game is Tuesday against the Celtics, so his fantasy owners should consider him between questionable and doubtful for that game. With him out, it's been Alex Caruso stepping up the most at the point while Tyler Ennis starts. Josh Hart could also benefit if other starters are out.

Ball (knee) will not play during Sunday's contest against the Knicks, Bill Oram of The Orange County Register reports. Ball will miss his fourth straight game Sunday due to a swollen left knee. The team has not provided an official timetable for his return and he is being evaluated on a day-to-day basis. In his stead, Tyler Ennis and Jordan Clarkson will likely continue seeing the bulk of the run at point guard.

Lonzo Ball (knee) did not practice on Friday and remains out against the Pacers. He didn't do anything at all, so it's looking like Ball will need to miss at least a couple more games. He'll also have to go through a full practice before getting the green light for a game. With him out, Tyler Ennis should continue to start while Josh Hart, Corey Brewer and Gary Payton II may see increased playing time.

Lonzo Ball (knee) is listed 'out' for Friday's game vs. the Pacers. This shouldn't surprise his fantasy owners, since the Lakers err on the side of caution and coach Luke Walton said recently that "[Ball] doesn’t look like he’s ready to start playing." Tyler Ennis, Josh Hart and Jordan Clarkson all stand to gain in Ball's absence, but there are no clear-cut fantasy winners here.
