According to reports, Lonzo Ball’s injured knee is causing ‘serious concerns’ for Chicago Bulls brass. Long-time Chicago media personality, David Kaplan recently reported this issue, and fans are beginning to worry about their new star point guard.
Ball, was traded to the Bulls before the 2021 NBA season from the New Orleans Pelicans, and the Bulls appeared to be serious NBA Finals contenders after a red-hot 27-13 record with Ball as its starting point guard.
After his removal from the lineup due to knee soreness, Ball eventually would have surgery and was expected to miss 6-8 weeks.
It was then reported Ball’s knee was not responding favorably, and was eventually ruled out for the remainder of the season, including the playoffs.
The Bulls finished the season 19-23 without Ball, and a gentlemen’s sweep by the Milwaukee Bucks in the playoffs.
Ball finished his first season with the Bulls averaging 13 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 5.1 APG, and shooting a career-high 42.3 percent from 3.
