Lonzo Ball had massive hype entering the league, and while he remains a valuable asset in the NBA, constant injuries have prevented his career from reaching the next level over and over again.

Ball offers a unique skillset that allows him to be impactful in all areas of the floor with a lot of untapped potential left, but the mentioned injuries have always slowed down the promising career of the eldest Ball brother.

Before the season, the Chicago Bulls were hopeful to have Ball back for the start of the season, after his surgery last season, but the point guard was in need of a second surgery on his knee, after being unable to run or jump and even having pain walking up stairs.

Then, halfway into the season, things were still looking grim for the former number two pick. The entire injury is pretty weird. Neither the Chicago Bulls, nor Lonzo Ball, nor the media staff know, why there is still pain in Lonzo’s knee, even though the point guard has had at least opinions from six different doctors.

Now, according to 670 The Score’s Dan Bernstein. the Bulls even fear the worst and believe Ball might never be able to play again in his career:


“The other thing I heard is even though publicly there has been an expression of guarded optimism regarding a future for Lonzo Ball,” Bernstein said. “And there’s a reason why for you’re pursuant to all kinds of union issues, why they haven’t asked for the salary exemption yet because they don’t want to send the message publicly that they’re done with him. They don’t think it’s likely that he ever plays again.”
