The Bulls say that Ball will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks.
The news on Ball isn’t too surprising.
The Bulls guard underwent surgery on his left knee in January to repair a torn meniscus. He suffered multiple setbacks, and a report earlier this month indicated Ball would not be ready for the start of the season.
Given the lack of progress Ball had been making in his recovery, the need for his procedure makes sense. The 24-year-old averaged 13.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.8 steals per game in 35 contests with the Bulls last season.
