Hornets LaMelo Ball Injury update and return date

LaMelo Ball won’t be playing for the Charlotte Hornets against the Memphis Grizzlies, but it’s not all terrible.

LaMelo Ball is very close to making a comeback after missing a sizable portion of the season’s beginning, according to head coach Steve Clifford, as reported by Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer. In fact, it appears like the injured player has fully recovered, and the Hornets are only being cautious to prevent any setbacks when they resume play.

Ball has missed the entire season so far due to an ankle sprain that he is presently treating. The exact date of his return is unknown, but the team is hopeful it will happen as soon as possible. Fantasy managers can anticipate that Dennis Smith Jr. will continue to work during his absence.

LaMelo Ball had a Grade 2 ankle sprain during the preseason, delaying the start of his 2022–23 season. No timetable was provided for his injury recuperation and return, but it’s important to note that he was recently observed moving well while taking part in team warmups.
