Lonzo Ball exited tonight’s NBA Summer League game in the third quarter.
The Los Angeles Lakers rookie was having another strong game (16 points, 10 assists and four rebounds) when he went down with what appeared to be an injured right calf.
Ball went back to the locker room and could also be seen getting his calf stretched out on the sideline.
Though he did not re-enter the game, Ball did interviews afterwards and said he’s hopeful he’ll be able to play in tomorrow’s championship against the Portland Trail Blazers.
