Lakers’ Ball undergoes successful surgery

Lonzo Ball has not been made available in trade talks, an NBA source tells Amico Hoops.

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball had successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday, the team announced.

Ball had a torn meniscus in his left knee. The Lakers announced Ball is expected to make a full recovery by the start of the 2018-19 training camp.

Ball played in 52 games during his rookie season and averaged 10.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 7.2 assists, shooting 36.0 percent from the field and 30.5 percent from three.

Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka says Ball and Rajon Rondo will compete for the team’s starting point guard spot once camp opens.
