The Lakers will be without Lonzo Ball on Sunday and Monday but he’s reportedly feeling better and could return to practice soon.
Ball was left at home given the travel from L.A. to Houston to Minnesota for this upcoming back-to-back, and it just wasn’t worth the risk of bringing him on the trip. His shoulder is feeling better and he’ll resume shooting work and then practices if all goes well. Wednesday’s home date with the Thunder seems like the earliest possible return date, so check back for updates after the Lakers return home. Make sure Jordan Clarkson is owned in the meantime.
