Lonzo Ball has been fully cleared for basketball activity but will not participate in 5-on-5 contact work at the onset of training camp.
Ball will gradually work his way up to full participation but the fact that he's been cleared means this is just the Lakers being cautious. Rob Pelinka also wouldn't guarantee that Lonzo would be ready by opening night, but that's the way everything is heading. The presence of LeBron James will take the ball out of his hands a bit but Ball's multi-cat output should still make him a solid fantasy contributor. He's showcased a new-look jumper, which is nice, but you'll want to beware the hype train all things considered.
