Lakers’ Lonzo Ball Cleared For Full Basketball Activities

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball was cleared by team doctors and can resume all basketball activities. Ball had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee back in mid July.

General Manager Rob Pelinka in a statement said, “he’s been 100 percent cleared by our medical staff to return to full basketball activities.” 

Pelinka went on to say that Ball will participate in everything at training camp except 5-on-5 drills. There is no timetable for Ball to return, he is considered day-to-day.

Lakers reporter, Joey Ramirez wrote that Lonzo’s, “most noticeable development has been his refined shot mechanics. At a glance, he appears to now bring the ball straight into his shooting motion, rather than swinging to the side on the way up.”

If Ball can change his shot to make it mechanically better while knocking down a higher percentage(last season he shot 36%) he will be a more dangerous player. Lonzo Ball had a solid rookie season averaging 10.2 points and 7.2 assists in 52 games.
