News of the surgery comes a month after it was reported that Ball had a platelet-rich plasma shot for his left knee, which kept the former second overall pick on the sidelines for a month, according to ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk. He resumed basketball activity shortly after.
Just days ago, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said Ball will be "100 percent available for training camp" regardless of a potential knee surgery, according to The Athletic's Bill Oram.
It's unclear how long it will take Ball to recover from the surgery. The Lakers expect to give an update shortly after the completion of the procedure.
