At this point if there is any question of him being 100% I would sit him the next four games and keep him out of the Rising Stars game.

Let him practice until the 23rd and feel great for the last 25 games. Finishing strong is much more important then the next couple weeks.

@LakersReporter

Quote:
Lonzo Ball: “Today hopefully I can get a little big of movement in. Whenever they let me play I’ll be on the court.”


Quote:
Lonzo said he’s going to ramp things up to doing some lateral movement today. He’s yet to really do much of that.


Quote:
Lonzo said it’s “ramping back up” after they slowed things down in Toronto. They’ve progressed since he felt pain in that workout, and he’s “past that point right now.”


Quote:
Ball hasn’t been able to sprint or jump yet. He’s been frustrated as “This is the most games I’ve ever missed in my career.” With that said, it’s definitely been feeling better, and he thinks he “Should be back soon.”

I guarantee he will be "well enough" for the Rising Stars game.

This is what I expected would be the silver lining for him.

Ball said he’s been able to “see the game from a different point of view”
while being out. Is trying to take something positive out of missing games by learning something

Ball said he “isn’t sure” if he’ll be ready for All-Star weekend. Just has to keep seeing how the knee responds as they keep ramping up.

He ain't missing the rising stars game no matter what. It affects negatively on the Big Baller Brand to miss that.

Not just that, but it's just going to be 10-20mpg with low contact anyway.

It's a nice way to get back into shape.

Lonzo said he can’t jump or run full speed yet. I asked if he’d tested the knee laterally yet and he said not really.

Quote:
Lonzo Ball is gradually ramping up his physical activity but isn’t jumping or sprinting yet.

When he first felt pain in his left knee, “I didn’t know it was this serious,” he said Wednesday. He has been out more than three weeks.

A bit concerning no? 3 weeks and still not able to cut. Yikes. Keep him out as long as necessary.

Seriously, right? I really like him and miss seeing him, but 3 weeks is an eternity in the NBA.

Even if he has missed more than 3 weeks now; Lorenzo Ball will be back (just in time for all star weekend).

I can't imagine being a father at age 19/20. Love my kids but no way I would be ready for that at that age.

Dumb ass.
18 years of child support, or losing half in a marriage. California is the worst place to have a child and get married if you're rich. He should've just froze his sperm, then got a vasectomy.
