According to Shams Charania at The Athletic, the Lakers prevented Lonzo Ball from undergoing an unauthorized surgery on his ankle in February.
Per the report, Ball traveled to Ohio in late February to get a procedure on his injured ankle. Ball contacted GM Rob Pelinka who informed him that the team would not approve the procedure and that it could potentially void his contract if Ball went through with it. Ball was cajoled into returning to Los Angeles and owner Jeanie Buss sent a private plane out to bring him back. The Lakers never fail with the drama and there's likely to be a lot more before next season.
