Lonzo Ball had planned to test his knee on Wednesday, but his return from a sprained left MCL remains uncertain.
Ball is hopeful that he will play soon, but his return to action and his status for the Rising Stars Challenge game during All-Star weekend remains uncertain. The Los Angeles Lakers had anticipated having the rookie point guard ramp up the speed of his noncontact activity while also testing his lateral movement more on Wednesday afternoon. Ball said entering that workout that he had been unable to jump or do full sprints.

Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard
It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.
The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
