Lakers rookie out through All-Star break; to miss Rising Stars

Lakers rookie out through All-Star break; to miss Rising Stars

The Los Angeles Lakers will aim to get point guard Lonzo Ball back on Friday, Feb. 23 against the Dallas Mavericks, according to Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times.

"I want all my three boys to play for the Lakers", LaVar told Urbonas.

Unfortunately, there's a glaring issue with LaVar's plan, as the Lakers own club options on Lonzo's contract through the 2020-21 season and can then match any deal he signs as a restricted free agent three years from now. Both LiAngelo and LaMelo are now playing in Lithuania. In his absence, the Lakers have won eight out of their last 13 games, including impressive victories against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Boston Celtics.

The Lakers acquired Isaiah Thomas in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers and he's responded in his first game with the team, pouring in 22 points and six assists in his debut off Luke Walton's bench.

"We are not going to play him tomorrow (against Pelicans)". With a back-to-back and a week off after that, the progress is great but it just doesn't make sense to risk it right now. It wasn't up-and-down, full-court scrimmaging (type of contact), but it was half court defensive drills with guys getting after it.

Walton assumes Ball will be out for the Rising Stars game.

Walton said the discomfort Ball felt is not a setback or something that is a concern to the progress the point guard is making.

"Lonzo will be on his third year, and I let every National Basketball Association team know that Lonzo is not going to re-sign with the Lakers but will go to any team that will take all of my three boys. Whenever his body is ready to get after it again".

Fox has averaged 11.3 points and 4.3 assists per game, starting the majority of the games he's played for Sacramento this season.

The latest injury is improving.
