Lonzo Ball may miss remainder of season with ankle injury

Lonzo Ball ankle injury

The Los Angeles Lakers’ playoff hopes have all but faded out of existence, and any lingering hopes received a major blow on Friday.

According to coach Luke Walton, guard Lonzo Ball could be out for the remainder of the season and is not close to a return from his ankle injury.

The original prognosis on Ball’s injury was 4-to-6 weeks, but that’s going to pass with no sign of his return. With the team’s playoff hopes fading, there’s also little reason to rush him back. While he’s not a star on offense, the Lakers have definitely missed his defense over the past few weeks as they’ve faded from playoff contention.
