Lonzo Ball had an MRI on his right calf on Tuesday. The MRI confirmed that he has a mild strain and he's expected to be fine in a week or two. The Lakers are expected to sign a veteran PG this week to mentor Ball, but the starting job belongs to the rookie. After averaging 16.3 points, a league-leading 9.3 assists, 7.7 rebounds and 2.5 steals in Vegas, fantasy owners will have to target Ball in the middle rounds if they want him.

Lonzo Ball was named the Vegas Summer League MVP. Sadly, Ball won't play in the championship vs. Portland on Monday night due to a mild calf strain, but he is considered day-to-day. Ball averaged 16.3 points, a league-leading 9.3 assists, 7.7 rebounds and 2.5 steals, though he did struggle with his perimeter shooting. He's joined by Dennis Smith Jr., Josh Jackson, John Collins and Caleb Swanigan on the All-NBA Summer League first team, while Bryn Forbes, Wayne Selden Jr., Jayson Tatum, Kyle Kuzma and Cheick Diallo were named to the All-NBA Summer League second team.

Lonzo Ball (mild right calf strain), P.J. Dozier (ankle) and Josh Hart (ankle) will not suit up for the Las Vegas Summer League championship game against the Trail Blazers. Ball has nothing left to prove at Summer League, and there's just zero incentive for him to push through even a minor injury during this offseason series of exhibition games. Ball will finish Summer League with averages of 16.3 points, 9.3 dimes, 7.7 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.0 block per game. He looks locked in as LA's starting point guard next season, so he'll be someone to consider towards the late-middle rounds on draft day.

Lonzo Ball squared off with Dennis Smith Jr. in the Vegas semifinals on Sunday, finishing with 16 points, two 3-pointers, 10 assists, four rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers. Ball added a few highlights despite playing just 21 minutes tonight, including the seamless punch-pass linked below. He left due to right calf tightness in the second half but stayed on the bench, and there was no need for him to return given the fact that it was an exhibition (L.A. nearly blew a huge lead without him). This doesn't seem like a real concern, but Ball could be rested or limited for Monday's final game.

Lonzo Ball had a strong game against the Nets during a 115-106 win, making 4-of-12 from the field for 14 points with nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal, three turnovers and one 3-pointer. The Lakers continue to flirt with 100 points and this time they flew past that mark in a quarterfinal win. While Ball didn't shoot the rock well, he had some big rebounds and getting this win in a close game against a team with several players with NBA experience should count for something. Ball has his fingerprints all over how the team plays when he's on the court, especially when it comes to tempo and looking to hit a teammate leaking out. His shot selection is getting a little better and his improvement helps explain why the Lakers are winning games. If nobody rests, it'll be Lonzo vs. Dennis Smith Jr. on Sunday as must-see TV for NBA diehards.
