Both players have been cleared to return to practice starting Monday and the timing could not be better with starting point guard Lonzo Ball suffering a sprained ankle in the third quarter against Houston. Ball is expected to miss the next 6 weeks making his potential return sometime in early March.

Levon Satamian | January 21st, 2019

The Los Angeles Lakers had a good week last week. It could have been a better week but I will get into that later on. The Lakers started off last week hosting the Chicago Bulls, before heading west to face the Oklahoma City Thunder and then the Houston Rockets.
