Lonzo Ball Day-to-Day with Sprained Ankle, Could Miss Rest of Preseason

Updated

on

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball was ruled out of his second straight preseason game with a sprained left ankle, and his status for the remainder of the preseason is uncertain.

Lakers coach Luke Walton said Ball is still having difficulty moving side to side and did not rule out the possibility of the No. 2 overall pick sitting out the remainder of the preseason.

Walton did make it clear, though, that Ball is considered day-to-day, adding that “I assume he will be back” by the season opener against the LA Clippers on Oct. 19.

“I hope not, but yeah, that’s a possibility,” Walton said when asked if Ball could miss the rest of the preseason. “It is different with every player. He is new to the team, so we’ve got to see how long these types of injuries take him to come back from. We’d like to have him back, but again, we are not going to rush him back just to try to get him out there.”
