Report: Lonzo expected to miss at least a few months after knee surgery
Doctors reportedly believe they've addressed the knee issue that's been bothering Ball since January, and he should be able to return at some point this season.
On the eve of the procedure, Ball described the discomfort he was experiencing both on and off the court. The Bulls guard hasn't been able to run or jump, and even everyday activities like going up stairs have been "painful."
Ball was limited to 35 appearances in his first year with Chicago, averaging 13 points, 5.4 boards, 5.1 assists, and 1.8 steals. He's entering the second season of a four-year, $80-million contract.
