    Pelicans' Lonzo Ball: Traded to Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (ankle) -- along with Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and three first-round picks, including the No. 4 overall in 2019 Draft -- has been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for Anthony Davis, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.After spending his first two seasons in Los Angeles, Ball has been dealt to the Pelicans along with most of his young teammates. Though Ball's first two years have been underwhelming, a change of scenery could prove beneficial. Assuming the ankle injury that sidelined him for a large portion of 2018-19 proves to be a non-issue, Ball is the favorite to open the upcoming season as New Orleans' starting point guard, with Jrue Holiday occupying the other backcourt spot for the top unit.

    Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Out for remainder of season

    Lonzo Ball (ankle) will be shut down for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.Ball and the team agreed on this course of action after Ball had his ankle re-evaluated Saturday. The focus now will be to get the point guard healthy for the offseason, as it would give him his first opportunity to have a full summer to work on his game as a pro. Overall, Ball has played just 99 games through two seasons, as a knee injury limited him last year. He'll end the 2018-19 campaign with lower box score stats across the board, but Ball did manage to increase both his field-goal and three-point percentages.

    Lakers' Lonzo Ball: To miss another week

    Lonzo Ball (ankle) will need at least one more week of rehab, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.Ball was evaluated Thursday, and it was determined that he'll require one more week of rehabilitation. His absence will likely extend longer than a week, however, as he'll have to get some work in during practice before he can return to action. The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to update his status in a week when he's evaluated yet again.

    Lakers' Lonzo Ball: To be evaluated Thursday

    Lonzo Ball (ankle) will be re-evaluated by the Los Angeles Lakers' medical staff on Thursday, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.Ball is still in a holding pattern as he works back from a Grade 3 ankle sprain, but it looks as though we should get a much more definitive timetable after Thursday's evaluation. Ball hasn't played since Jan. 19, and as of Wednesday there's been little reason to believe his return is imminent.

    Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Expected return date pushed back

    Lonzo Ball's (ankle) recovery could extend beyond his original 4-to-6 week timeline, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.Ball is apparently dealing with a bone bruise on top of his Grade 3 left ankle sprain, which the Los Angeles Lakers believe could push back his scheduled return date. The second-year point guard has already surpassed the shorter end of his return timetable -- he suffered the injury Jan. 19 -- and given his limited progress up until this point, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sidelined beyond six weeks. In the meantime, Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo should continue to split the majority of minutes at point guard in Ball's absence.

    Lakers' Lonzo Ball: No on-court activity

    Lonzo Ball has resumed running on an anti-gravity treadmill but has yet to progress to any on-court work since spraining his left ankle Jan. 19 in Houston, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.At the time he suffered the injury, Ball was projected to require 4-to-6 weeks to recover. The short end of that timetable has now arrived, but Ball's limited progress to date suggests six weeks -- if not longer -- may now be a more realistic target date for the point guard's return. Expect the team to provide another update on Ball's condition when the Los Angeles Lakers reconvene after the All-Star break. Rajon Rondo had assumed most of the responsibilities of initiating the offense when Ball was first sidelined, but the veteran has since slipped to a lower-minute backup role over the past two games while Brandon Ingram has stepped in as the new starting point guard.

    Lakers' Lonzo Ball: Expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks

    Lonzo Ball (ankle) has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 left ankle sprain and is expected to remain out for 4-to-6 weeks, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated reports.Ball suffered the ankle injury during Saturday's contest, and although X-rays came back negative, he'll be sidelined for at least the next month. Updates on his status will be provided as he makes progress in his recovery. With Ball on the shelf, expect Josh Hart and Rajon Rondo (who is doubtful for Monday) to take over at point guard.
