As expected, Lonzo-Ball went on the billiards again, and instead came out with good news. The operation went well, and while we feared a white season, he should be able to play again in « a few months » according to The Athletic. According to NBC Sports Chicago, his knee will be re-evaluated in four to six weeks. Then, based on this review, we will know more about his return to competition.
Absent from the courts since January, Ball was initially supposed to miss two months of the regular season, and ultimately he never played again with a second operation on the same knee.
At the start of the week, the Bulls point guard explained that he could neither run nor jump… « There is an angle, when my knee is bent between 30° and 60°, where I have no strength. And I can’t catch up. So until I can do those things, I can’t play. I did rehabilitation. It was getting better. But it wasn’t to the point where I could go out in the field and run at full speed or jump. Surgery is therefore the next step. »
And so it went well.
