The Chicago Bulls front office has expressed concerns about Lonzo Ball regarding his knee injury that forced him to miss 47 games this past season. NBCS Chicago’s David Kaplan discussed on his ESPN1000 show how the lack of progress has become an area of serious concern for the front office and coaching staff.
“I am hearing that there are serious concerns within the front office of the Chicago Bulls that Lonzo Ball’s knee is NOT getting better,” Kaplan said. “They’ve been out for two weeks — he couldn’t play in that series. If they were starting the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday, he could not play.”
Lonzo Ball suffered a small meniscus tear in January and also had a bone bruise in the same knee. He underwent surgery and the initial timetable for return was about two months but every time his conditioning was ramped up, he suffered setbacks which forced him to miss the end of the regular season and the entire playoff series versus the Milwaukee Bucks.
