2022 has been a forgettable year for Lonzo Ball. Beginning January 20 when his knee was diagnosed as a bone bruise and meniscus tear, Lonzo was supposed to miss just four t0 six weeks. With each training session, knee discomfort continued, which prompted the Chicago Bulls to sit him for the remainder of the season.

This past summer, the expectation was to rehab his knee with surgery being the very last option. Reports from Lonzo’s camp stated he would miss training camp, but ultimately be ready to go for the season.

Unfortunately, those plans changed quickly.

Just recently, reports stated Lonzo would have to undergo another surgery to repair his knee. While speaking to the media yesterday, Lonzo stated having pain “every single day.”

“This is something I’ve never dealt with,” said Lonzo. Even the doctors are surprised a little bit.” More concerning was Lonzo’s assertion of having difficulty just walking up the stairs.

“I really can’t run. I can’t run or jump. There’s like a range from like 30 to 60 degrees when my knee is bent that I have like no force, and I can’t catch myself. Until I can do those things, I can’t play.”
