The Los Angeles Lakers, after so many years without a top talent on the team, finally got one to come to town when LeBron agreed to a deal, but it nearly failed immediately when the franchise was ready to part ways with him in the first year.
Ball suffered a Grade 3 left ankle sprain.
The second-year point guard met again with team doctors Saturday.
A LeBron trade isn't happening, but the fact that the Lakers reportedly "contemplated" the move shows just how insane this season has been for the Los Angeles franchise. The condition usually occurs in legs, but can occur in the upper body. Ball is averaging 9.9 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game. Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, and Hart have been trying to blend in with the three-time National Basketball Association champion and things haven't been going on smoothly.
Ball was among several Lakers included in failed discussions before the February trade deadline involving Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis. "They'll get an opportunity to learn, and I get an opportunity to play with them, so we can take that out of it for sure". "All I'm going to say on him right now is that he's out for the rest of the season". Bosh eventually retired due to blood clotting issues, but many other athletes have continued to compete.
What was once a promising outlook on a young roster being led by one of the game's greats has turned into James becoming the scapegoat for all of the Lakers' pitfalls this year.
