Lonzo Ball will return to the starting lineup on Thursday and will have his minutes restriction raised.
This decision was an easy one for Lakers coach Luke Walton once Josh Hart injured his hand in practice. Ball has been solid in his small sample since returning, he’s posted per-game stats of 11.0 points, 7.0 boards, 5.5 assists, 3.0 treys, 1.5 steals, and 2.0 turnovers in just over 20 minutes per game. Ball is expected to have his minutes restriction raised to 30 minutes so you can confidently keep starting him. His high pace and play-making ability will also help his teammates’ value while they are on the floor with him.
