REPORT: Lonzo Ball Diagnosed With a Small Meniscus Tear

Chicago Bulls point guard Lonzo Ball has suffered a small meniscus tear in his left knee, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Bulls reportedly hope Ball can monitor his knee and play through the injury. The franchise hasn’t ruled out Ball going under the knife either; if the 24-year-old point guard elects to undergo surgery, the procedure will sideline him for a four-six-week period, according to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ball has missed three straight games due to his knee injury. The former UCLA superstar received arthroscopic surgery on that same knee in 2018.

In August, Ball joined the Bulls (28-15) on a four-year, $85 million contract after a sign-and-trade that sent Tomáš Satoranský, Garrett Temple, and a second-round pick to the New Orleans Pelicans. He is averaging 13 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 5.1 assists for the season.
