• Lonzo Ball (sprained MCL) could return during the Lakers’ current road trip.

    Walton made it clear that while it could be within the next couple days or within the week, they are still treating it as if it is long term. The Lakers are being as cautious as possible with their rookie franchise cornerstone and it doesn’t seem like a bad idea since they’ve won eight out of their last ten games and are currently on a four-game winning streak. Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle and Brandon Ingram have all stepped up in Ball’s absence but Clarkson has been the best of them all, ranking as the 16th best player over the past week and coming in at 53rd over the past six games. Ball won’t be returning on Sunday against the Raptors so his next chance to suit up will be on Wednesday against the Magic.
