After another setback while accelerating the rehabilitation of his left knee, there is growing pessimism about Chicago Bulls point guard Lonzo Ball returning to the lineup this season, sources told ESPN.
No final decision has been made, but a meeting in the coming days that is expected to include Bulls officials and Ball’s representatives at Klutch Sports is increasingly expected to result in Ball being shut down for the rest of the season. indicated sources.
Ball underwent left knee arthroscopy in January and has not played since Jan. 14.
In 35 games, he is averaging 13.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists while shooting 42.3% on 3 of 7.4 attempts per game in his freshman season in Chicago.
