As expected, Lonzo Ball will not play in Sunday's preseason opener.
The Lakers are taking it easy on Ball though he is impressing coaches and teammates with his work in practice. Luke Walton said that he couldn't tell that Ball did barely any on-court work over the offseason because of his knee surgery. Ball is in the midst of a "competition" but his slow start to camp and the preseason won't prevent him from winning the starting job.
