Shortly following the completion of his rookie campaign, Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball made the decision to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.
During a recent episode of the Facebook series “Ball in the Family,” Ball voiced that undergoing the operation was a choice that he felt was a last resort with the situation. (h/t Lonzo Wire’s Christian Rivas).
“I got hurt a couple of times during the season, and then after the season I decided to get a shot and try to take care of it that way,” Ball said. “That didn’t work, so the last option is surgery.”
Through the first few weeks of the offseason, Ball had decided to get his knee drained in hopes that would help better the situation as he worked out a month after that without any issues. However, things had continued to persist with his knee that forced him to get the surgery in order to correct the problem.
