Ball was held out of the Las Vegas Summer League championship game because of the calf injury, but as expected, it's nothing too serious. It's being considered a mild calf strain, which should be healed by the time training camp arrives. Ball is coming off one of the best Summer League showings ever with averages of 16.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 9.2 assists and 1.2 blocks across 34.6 minutes, which earned him MVP rights at the completion of the tournament. Ball appears to be locked in as the team's point guard of the future.
Dozier (ankle) won't play in Monday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Trail Blazers, Mark Medina of Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Dozier joins both Josh Hart (ankle) and Lonzo Ball (calf) as players slated to miss the Las Vegas Summer League championship game. He'll continue to undergo treatment over the next few weeks, with the hope of getting a training camp invite from the Lakers to further prove his worth. Dozier isn't guaranteed to make the final regular-season roster.
Hart (ankle) won't play in Monday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Trail Blazers, Mark Medina of Los Angeles Daily News reports.
The Lakers are slated to take on the Trail Blazers in the Vegas Summer League championship game, but they'll be without the likes of Hart, Lonzo Ball (calf) and P.J. Dozier (ankle). Hart finishes the Las Vegas Summer League playing in two games and averaging 10.0 points and 4.0 rebounds across 22.5 minutes. Hart is expected to battle for reserve minutes in the backcourt behind the likes of Lonzo Ball, Jordan Clarkson and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the backcourt during the upcoming season.
Ball (calf) will sit out Monday's Las Vegas Summer League game against the Trail Blazers, Mark Medina of Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Ball was forced to leave Sunday's contest against the Mavericks due to the injury, but the fact that the Lakers are listing it as just a mild calf strain likely means it isn't anything serious. He'll finish the Las Vegas Summer League playing in six games, with impressive averages of 16.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 9.2 assists and 1.2 blocks across 34.6 minutes per contest. He also shot 35.4 percent from the field and 20.5 percent from the three-point line. Ball should be good to go ahead of training camp and is fully expected to open the season as the team's starting point guard.
Ball was seen back on the sideline after leaving the game which suggests that the injury may not be a particularly serious one. Given the amount of work the rookie has received throughout summer league play, fatigue could be a leading factor for the setback. The Lakers have yet to rule out his availability for Monday's championship game, but with how much the team has invested in Ball it wouldn't be surprising if they took the cautionary route.
