Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball has a torn meniscus in his left knee and will undergo arthroscopic surgery on July 17.
Ball, however, is expected to be ready for training camp, according to Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports.
Even with Lakers announcement that Lonzo Ball is undergoing arthroscopic surgery to his left knee on Tuesday, I'm told he's still expected to be ready for training camp.

An update on Ball and his recovery timeline will be provided by the Lakers following the completion of the surgery.
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.
