Another Injury Bites Lakers

Ball Out 4-6 Weeks

Los Angeles Lakers’ Lonzo Ball Out 4-6 Weeks with Ankle Sprain

The Los Angeles Lakers injury bug strikes again

Already without LeBron James and Rajon Rondo, the Lakers have now lost point guard Lonzo Ball for then next 4-6 weeks with an ankle sprain. The second year guard out of UCLA sustained the injury after colliding into James Ennis III in the middle of the third quarter during the Lakers 138-134 loss to the Houston Rockets. Ball underwent an MRI following the game which revealed a Grade 3 sprain in his left ankle.

Sorely lacking point guard depth, the Lakers recalled Alex Caruso, Jonathan Williams, and rookie Isaac Bonga from their G League affiliate in South Bay. Caruso is expected to start for the Lakers in the absence of both Ball and Rondo.

The 21-year old Ball struggled to stay healthy early on in his NBA career. He missed 30 games in his rookie campaign due to injury as well.

Through 47 games this season, Ball has averaged 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.4 assists, albeit still struggling with his shooting.
