LONZO BALL INJURY UPDATE
 
Following an initial period of rest and targeted intervention, Bulls guard Lonzo Ball will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and is expected to return in 6-8 weeks. – 1:55 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
The Bulls can’t replace Lonzo Ball and Zach LaVine. But with Ball out 6-8 weeks and LaVine out at least the next 3 games, they can replicate a formidable starting backcourt.
Ayo Dosunmu and Coby White have met the moment.

ESPN story on Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball’s looming decision on a left knee scope that would sideline him 4-to-6 weeks: es.pn/3KoXmiV10:59 AM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Coby White trade scenario is likely out the window now, with the backcourt short-handed because of Lonzo Ball’s knee. That leaves Patrick Williams as the best trade chip, and packaged with a veteran contract. Is AK ready to part with PWill after one season? – 10:58 AM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
With Lonzo Ball heading toward having to pick a surgery path for his left meniscus, the goal doesn’t change for veteran DeMar DeRozan – play winning basketball and teach his teammates along the way.

Re: Lonzo Ball: Meniscus injuries are like real estate, it’s all about location. If the tear occurs in a specific spot then it can be repaired. If not, a meniscectomy (removal) is the best course of action if the issue is functionally limiting. (1/4) – 10:31 AM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
One bright side to Lonzo injury is how well Coby and Ayo have played. But Bulls obviously much better team with Ball healthy and they’ll need him right for any playoff run. – 10:20 AM
