Lakers' Lonzo Ball says he's 100 percent healthy
Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball (knee) said he is "100 percent and fully healthy."
Ball missed the final two weeks of the regular season after a PRP injection in his knee. He sat out about a month total, and says that he is fully healthy heading into the offseason. Ball put up some impressive numbers at times last season, but his efficiency and consistency will be two of the main things he needs to improve on in his second NBA season.
Ball averaged 10.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 1.7 steals, and 0.8 blocks over 34.2 minutes per game in his rookie season. He posted a 44.0 effective field goal percentage, and his nERD of -3.6 ranked 6th-worst among all players last year.
