The last chance operation for Lonzo Ball

The doctors felt that the operation went well. Billy Donovan wants to be reassuring about the third operation undergone on Monday by Lonzo-Ball at the level of his knee: a cartilage graft in the left knee precisely. A long period of rehabilitation opens up to him now. ” I know he will work very hard “, assures his coach, quoted by ESPN.

This new intervention, likely to make him miss the entire 2023-24 season, seems to be the last chance operation. “ I know that Lonzo, based on the information he was able to gather from different doctors, made the decision he thought was the best chance to get back on the pitch. We all understand it’s going to be an uphill battle for him, but I know he’s going to do everything possible in his rehabilitation to come back. “continues Donovan.

His playmaker, who has not stepped on an NBA floor since January 14, 2022, had recalled, before his time on the pool table, that his priority was to find his teammates. ” This process has been frustrating, but I’m confident that the next steps are the best. The support of my family, friends, fans and medical staff throughout my recovery is what keeps me going. “, displayed the 25-year-old player.

The second choice of the 2017 Draft said he was impatient to be able to play again. But the date of his potential return is still obviously very vague. The medical team mentioned to Billy Donovan an absence for ” an indefinite period “.

He certainly has a long way to go to recover, a long way to go to be able to get back on the pitch and play again. But I hope that his work ethic, his commitment and his motivation, as well as his desire to play, will allow him to exhaust all the possibilities available to him to achieve this. “, ends his coach.
