Lonzo Ball has been out since last January from a meniscus tear in his left knee, and his initial surgery didn’t heal him correctly. He had a second surgery this past September.
The initial report said Lonzo would miss four to six weeks. This was then changed to Lonzo being out until at least January 2023.
