Lonzo Ball Could Miss Another Season Due To Third Surgery
Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball may miss another season due to a third surgery on his knee.
Ball underwent a procedure to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, which has been bothering him for some time.
The surgery will require a six-week recovery period, but Ball is expected to miss much more time than that.
This is a major setback for the 23-year-old, who has struggled with injuries throughout his young career.
Ball has played just 171 out of a possible 294 games since being drafted second overall by the Lakers in 2017.
The Lakers traded Ball to the New Orleans Pelicans in 2019 as part of the Anthony Davis deal.
In his two seasons with the Pelicans, Ball has shown flashes of brilliance but has also dealt with inconsistency and injuries.
The Pelicans have not yet commented on Ball's latest injury or how it will impact his future with the team.
Fans will have to wait and see if Ball can recover from this latest setback and return to the court at full strength.
