When he initially suffered the injury, Ball was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks. Saturday will mark six weeks since the injury.
The Lakers have struggled with Ball sidelined, going 5-9. That has dropped them down to 10th in the Western Conference.
The Lakers have been decimated by injuries during LeBron James’ first season with the franchise. Ball, James and Rajon Rondo have all missed significant time due to injuries.
Both Rondo and James are back now. Once Ball is able to return, the Lakers should be at close to full strength for the first time in quite a while.
That will only help as the team fights for a postseason spot down the stretch.
