Ball (knee) has officially been ruled out for Friday's matchup with the Pacers, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports.
It was reported a few days back that Ball was unlikely to play Friday, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. He'll sit out his third straight game because of a left knee sprain and will then have another couple days off going into Sunday's contest vs. the Knicks. In Ball's place Wednesday, Tyler Ennis (20 minutes) picked up the start, while Josh Hart (26 minutes) saw added run off the bench. Jordan Clarkson logged just 21 minutes in that game, but could also see an increased role Friday as well.
Ball (knee), who's already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, is also unlikely to play Friday vs. the Pacers, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports. "From what I see he doesn't look like he's ready to start playing," coach Luke Walton said.
Ball continues to work his way back from a left knee sprain and barring any surprise improvement with his health, there's a good chance he remains out the next two contests. That would bring Sunday's tilt with the Knicks as his next option for a return, though it will be worth it to monitor Ball's status over the next few days to make sure he's out as expected Friday. Tyler Ennis is the likely starter in his place, while Jordan Clarkson should also benefit as well.
Ball (knee) will not play during Wednesday's contest against the Thunder, Bill Oram of The Orange County Register reports.
This is nothing unexpected, as Ball was listed as doubtful heading into morning shootaround. In his stead, Tyler Ennis and Jordan Clarkson will likely handle most of the point guard duties.
With Ball's absence from practice Tuesday, all signs are pointing to the rookie missing his second straight game with a left knee sprain, as he is also listed as doubtful in the team's game notes.Should Ball miss Wednesday's game in Oklahoma City, Tyler Ennis would be in line to get the start at point guard once again with both Jordan Clarkson and Gary Payton II filling in off the bench.
Ball (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Grizzlies, Bill Oram of The Orange County Register reports.
As expected, Ball will be held out of Monday's contest with a left knee sprain. Tyler Ennis should be in line to get the start at point guard in the rookie's absence. Given that the injury is being described as minor, there's a solid chance Ball could return for Wednesday's against the Thunder.
