Charlotte Hornets star LaMelo Ball was injured in the same area that took him off the court for much of last season
According to the journalist Shams Charaniafrom “The Athletic”, the point guard of Charlotte Hornets, LaMelo Ball, must be away from the court for a long period of time due to a sprained ankle. Also according to information from the journalist, this Tuesday, the 28th, the franchise is being cautious in its approach to the treatment of its big star.
Coincidentally, the injured ankle is the same one that left the point guard out of action for the remainder of the 2022/23 season. This time, examinations identified only one spillway in the region, without any structural damage. At 22 years old, Ball suffered the injury last Monday, 27, in the match against Orlando Magic. After being challenged, LaMelo fell awkwardly to the ground, misplacing his foot with just under two and a half minutes remaining in the second quarter.
