• Lonzo Ball
    G, Los Angeles Lakers

    Lonzo Ball will start for Rajon Rondo, who is serving a three-game suspension, and is without a minutes restriction.

    Rondo was the spittee in Saturday's Spit-Gate against the Rockets. After video review, the league did determine Rondo spit on Chris Paul, before throwing a punch at Paul. Ball did not open the year as a starter due to his recovery from knee surgery. The suspension for Rondo should be a catalyst for Ball, who could keep the starting gig from here on out. He is a great target in trades if his owner is doubting him.
