Lonzo Ball Still Feels Discomfort In His Knee Even After A Second Surgery:
Ball had been in Los Angeles on Tuesday getting ready for his third operation overall, including one in 2018 during his time as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. The Chicago Bulls had their first team practice of the year during that time. Lonzo Ball stated that he will travel back to Chicago to recover from the operation with the club.
Ball’s recovery from surgery is expected to take approximately four to six weeks, according to the Chicago Bulls, but neither they nor Ball were able to provide a timetable for his return next season. Lonzo Ball did not anticipate missing the full season due to his knee, though.
Ball claimed that in addition to being constrained in his pursuits off the basketball floor, he is also having trouble moving about and climbing stairs. Ball’s ongoing problems have amazed the team, the physicians, and himself with their persistence. He said that this week’s operation focused equally on locating the problems and resolving them.
