Coach Luke Walton said Lonzo Ball was a full participant at practice on Saturday.
The rookie is hoping to be fully recovered from a sprained ankle in preparation for the start of the regular season. He has been making progress to date and is a good bet to be ready for the Lakers season opener against the Clippers on Thursday, though he is yet to go through any contact at practice. A lot of people have been reaching for him early in drafts, but he does belong in the middle rounds as an ideal target for owners looking for high upside in assists.
