Lonzo Ball (sprained shoulder) participates in Los Angeles Lakers' practice

Ball is considered questionable for Lakers' next game on Friday

From NBA Twitter reports

Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball was a full participant in practice on Thursday after missing the last six games with a sprained left shoulder. Ball is questionable to return for the Lakers’ next game against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday (10:30 ET, NBA League Pass).

After practice, Lakers coach Luke Walton said Ball showed “all positive signs” during the full-contact drills. Ball said he “felt pretty good”, but not 100 percent yet.

Ball has been out for the Lakers since he injured his shoulder on Dec. 23. The No. 2 overall draft pick is averaging 10.0 points, 7.1 assists and 6.9 rebounds.

The Lakers (11-26) have lost eight straight games to fall back into last place in the Western Conference standings.
