Twitter reacts to Lonzo Ball getting stomach virus before game against Lakers

Lonzo Ball

Lonzo Ball’s revenge game against the Los Angeles Lakers may have to wait due to a stomach issue.

Marc J. Spears of ESPN reported on Tuesday that the New Orleans Pelicans guard was sent home from practice due to a stomach virus, raising uncertainty about his ability to play against his former team on Wednesday.

The poorly-timed issue predictably led to wisecracks and jokes on Twitter:

Ball, who is averaging 11.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game in 11 appearances this season, has yet to play the Lakers since they traded him to the Pelicans this summer as part of the Anthony Davis blockbuster deal.

The former UCLA star recently spoke candidly about his time with the Lakers, but he might not be able to face them on the court just yet.
