Ball ended with 25 points (9-19 FG, 7-11 3Pt), 11 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 127-123 loss to the Mavericks.
Ball matched his career-high with seven triples, once again flaunting his fantasy-friendly game. The Pelicans are pushing for a playoff spot, and Ball is going to be getting heavy minutes, at least for the foreseeable future. Over the past month, Ball is flirting with first-round value, and it appears he is finally beginning to put things together alongside a number of players who can be considered ball-dominant.
Ball accumulated 26 points (9-12 FG, 7-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 139-134 loss to the Timberwolves.
Ball tied his season-high seven made threes in the fast-paced contest, and he was also a force defensively. With the performance, he also became just one of 14 players this season to post a game with at least 26 points, eight assists, three steals and one block. Over Ball's past 10 outings, he's averaging 12.6 points, 8.5 assists, 5.8 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 34.5 minutes. Plus, he's shot 42.9 percent from distance.
Ball put up 19 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine assists, nine rebounds, three steals and one block in 38 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Lakers.
Although Ball has been outside of the top 80 on the season in nine-category leagues, he's been a top 50 asset over the last two months after seeing a slight bump in play time, and increasing his assist output. He's not an efficient scorer, shooting just 39.9 percent from the field, and 58.1 percent from the line on the season, but the 22-year old is a beast at accumulating counting stats. As the Pelicans hunt for a playoff spot. Ball's role should be steady and reliable down the stretch.
Ball totaled five points (1-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 assists, six rebounds, four steals and two blocks in 35 minutes during Friday's 116-104 victory over Cleveland.
Ball's shooting struggles continued Friday; however, he was able to contribute across the board to round out a solid performance. He is having the best season of his career, putting up top-70 numbers thus far. He certainly has a couple of glaring holes in his fantasy game, not the least of which is his free throw efficiency. With that being said, he barely gets to the line and so the impact is typically minimal. His playing time is all but assured moving forward and given the Pelicans likely push for the playoffs, he should continue to be a solid mid-round option the rest of the way.
Ball finished with 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt), eight rebounds and eight assists in 31 minutes during the Pelicans' 118-109 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.
Ball took a hard fall to the floor after being emphatically blocked by Alex Caruso in the fourth quarter. However, he responded in a big way by nailing a transition three on the next possession. Racking up 16 cumulative assists and rebounds still represented the meat of Ball's output --- a figure that is attainable on a nightly basis for Ball in this role.
Ball posted two points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), nine assists, six rebounds and four steals across 27 minutes during Sunday's 115-101 victory over the Warriors.
Ball couldn't find his shot, but he was able to get his teammates involved and be active on defense.

Across eight February contests, he's averaging 10.9 points, 7.5 assists, 6.9 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.0 blocks in 35.5 minutes. He's also hitting 2.3 threes per contest at 39.1 percent his month.
Ball registered 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and one steal in 40 minutes during Friday's 128-115 win at Portland.
Ball's scoring numbers haven't been very impressive, and he has topped the 15-point plateau just twice in his last 10 games, but he makes up for it with great passing numbers. The former Laker has dished out at least five dimes in five straight contests and continues to make an impact as a playmaking threat, averaging 8.1 assists per game in his last 10 games.
Ball put up 16 points (5-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 35 minutes during Thursday's 123-118 loss to the Thunder.
Entering this game, Ball had posted double-digit assists in two out of his last three outings. He couldn't reach the double-figure mark this time but still produced a strong fantasy line with good counting stats while shooting 55.6 percent from the field, 62.5 percent from three and swishing his lone free-throw attempt. Ball has been playing at a top-40 level over the last two weeks, going for 12.7 points, 7.4 assists, 7.3 rebounds, 2.9 threes, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks per game while shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line during that span. The only downside is the 4.0 turnovers per game. After getting off to a somewhat slow start to the season, Ball has really found his rhythm on this Pelicans team as of late.

Ball scored in double figures during 10 straight games from Dec. 25 to Jan. 13 and while his scoring numbers have been inconsistent since then, he seems to be turning things around with double-digit scoring efforts in four of his last six contests. That said, Ball offers value in other areas of the game as well to make up for his lack of scoring consistency. He is averaging 7.8 assists, 7.5 rebounds and a combined 2.3 steals/blocks per game during that aforementioned six-game stretch.
Ball had nine points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt), 10 assists, three rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 33 minutes Thursday night during the Pelicans' win over the Bulls.
Ball was the only Pelican player to log more than 26 minutes in the contest, and he responded with a credible performance.

Ball scored 11 points (4-12 FG, 3-10 3Pt) while adding 14 rebounds, three assists and a block in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 120-108 loss to the Bucks.
The assists were his lowest total since Dec. 28, but Ball still delivered a solid fantasy line. With Zion Williamson now healthy, the Pelicans' offense is finally approaching its full capabilities, and Ball's role as distributor is on the rise -- in seven games with Zion in the lineup, the third-year point guard is averaging 10.9 points, 8.6 assists, 8.1 boards, 2.7 threes, 1.4 steals and 0.9 blocks.

Ball finished one assist shy of a triple-double while filling up the stat sheet and contributing across every category.

Ball contributed 19 points (7-10 FG, 5-7 3Pt), eight assists, six rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 139-111 win over the Grizzlies.
Ball has scored in double figures just twice during his last six outings, but he is doing enough in other areas of the game to supplement that lack of scoring -- he has dished out five or more dimes in every single game over that span. The former Laker is averaging 10.5 points, 8.8 assists, 6.8 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game during that six-game stretch.
Ball contributed eight points (3-10 FG, 2-9 3Pt), 15 assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Sunday's 123-108 win over the Celtics.
Ball finished with a career high assist total while contributing across every statistical category. Despite his improvement as a shooter, defenses are still regularly leaving him wide open offensively with mixed results. Still, Ball is at least taking those shots and continues to showcase his versatile two-way skillset on a team that has empowered him to play the lead guard role.
Ball scored 18 points (7-16 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding 11 assists, 10 rebounds, two steals and a block in 39 minutes during Saturday's 133-130 loss to the Clippers.
The triple-double was the sixth of his career and his third of the season -- all of which have come in the last 10 games. Ball is averaging 17.1 points, 9.3 assists, 7.6 boards, 3.0 threes, 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks over that stretch, and only his lackluster FG and FT percentages are keeping him from true fantasy superstardom.
Ball dished out 13 assists in 42 minutes during Thursday's 138-132 overtime win over the Jazz. He also had five points (2-12 FG, 1-5 3PT), four rebounds and two blocks.
Ball struggled badly with his shot but that shouldn't be surprising since he is making just 31.9 percent of his field-goal attempts during his last five contests. However, he is averaging 10.0 assists per game during that span and has recorded double-digit dimes in four of his last seven starts. Ball should remain fantasy relevant due to his playmaking and rebounding skills even if his shots stop falling altogether.
Ball contributed 17 points (7-23 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 12 rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 46 minutes during Monday's 117-110 overtime win against the Pistons.
Ball was extremely inefficient as a scorer while amassing nearly as many turnovers (seven) as assists. Still, he racked up no shortage of counting stats while leading the shorthanded Pelicans (without Brandon Ingram, Jrue Holiday, J.J. Redick and Derrick Favors, among others) to a surprising overtime win against the Pistons. It's possible that aforementioned group will be ready to return for Thursday's matchup versus the Jazz, plus Zion Williamson (knee) is nearing his debut, but Ball seems to have turned a corner and is rewarding fantasy owners who were patient enough to hold onto him.
Ball posted 10 points (4-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt), 13 rebounds, nine assists and one block in 33 minutes during Saturday's 140-105 loss to the Celtics.
Ball finished with a season high in rebounding while nearing a triple-double, though he did amass more shot attempts than points. After failing to live up to the hype for the first couple months of 2019-20, Ball has been superb dating back to Dec. 29 versus Houston and seems to have hit his stride here in January.
