Ball suffered torn meniscus toward end of season
Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania reported in June that Ball had suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee. Ball was diagnosed with the meniscus tear at the end of the season, and Ball and the team were debating treatment options at the time of the report. They ultimately decided on surgery.
Ball missed 30 games last season due to a sprained MCL and contusion on the same knee.
