Point guard Lonzo Ball went through his first full-contact practice since injuring his left shoulder nearly two weeks ago and is hopeful that the Los Angeles Lakers will clear him to play Friday against the Charlotte Hornets.

The rookie said his bruised shoulder still is less than 100 percent but noted that will be the case even when he returns.
