MRI of Ball’s calf confirms mild strain

Lonzo Ball, back after missing 15 games with a sprained MCL, said he likes playing in the same backcourt with Isaiah Thomas.

Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball underwent an MRI on his right leg Tuesday and the results confirmed that he has a mild calf strain.

Ball sat out the final game of the Las Vegas Summer League, one that the Lakers won to take home the championship.

Ball averaged 16.3 points, 9.3 assists and 7.7 rebounds per game in Summer League while registering two triple-doubles as well.

He was voted by the media as the Summer League MVP.

It’s early, but so far Ball has lived up to all the hype surrounding him.

The No. 2 overall pick showed off his exquisite vision and passing skills in Las Vegas, and most importantly, led his team to victory during the knockout stages of Summer League.

Teammates and coaches continue to rave about Ball’s leadership skills and his innate ability to bring out the best in others.

The future in Los Angeles is very bright with Lonzo at the controls.
