Ball underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday.

Ball missed 24 of the final 40 games in 2018 as he dealt with a torn meniscus. The Lakers expect the 20-year-old to be ready to go when training camp opens in late September, but a more specific recovery timetable should become available once he begins his rehab program.
