Chicago Bulls Likely To Shut Down Lonzo Ball For The Rest Of The Season
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.
Now, past the halfway mark of the season, things are 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. It unfortunately seems like the Bulls are shutting Ball down for the season officially, after the All-Star break.
Chicago Bulls point guard Lonzo Ball is not running or cutting yet and the expectation is that the team will come out after the All-Star break saying that they are shutting Lonzo down for the season, per @KCJHoopon the Bulls Talk Podcast.
