Bulls guard Ball’s slow recovery after surgery is expected to be absent from training camp, which may affect his regular season performance

Chicago Bulls starting guard Lonzo Ball, 24, is still experiencing pain and discomfort after surgery on his left knee and is expected to miss the Bulls’ upcoming fall training camp until 2022, according to ESPN Sports. Whether the regular season can be played in the new 2023 season will also be doubtful.

Ball signed a four-year, $80 million contract with the Bulls starting in the 2021 offseason. Last season was his first with the Bulls, and he played in just 35 games due to injury issues, averaging 13 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.9 blocks per 34.6 minutes per game. . The overall shooting percentage is 42.3%, and now he has missed more than 130 games in the league through injury and injury, and I am afraid the number will continue to rise.

It is understood that Ball underwent surgery for a knee injury in 2018. He suffered a similar injury to a torn meniscus in his left knee again last season. Medical evaluation showed that the knee had bone bruises and a small meniscus tear. He had arthroscopic surgery in January. The Bulls originally set a recovery time of 6 to 8 weeks, however, Ball still felt pain in his left knee during intensive training, which caused him to miss last season’s regular season and playoffs.

As of the beginning of July, the injury report pointed out that Ball’s recovery process was slow. He still felt pain in his left knee when he tried to play basketball. The Bulls also said that Ball’s recovery has not met the team’s expectations.

Ball will not be able to participate in the Bulls’ fall training camp at the end of this month, and he will need to travel to the Bulls next week to evaluate the injury, according to sources. If Ball is unable to attend training camp , he is also expected to miss the pre- or mid-season regular season, when the team will lose a point guard who can play a key role on both ends of the floor.
