Lonzo Ball questionable for Friday’s home game vs. Denver
Lonzo Ball last played in a game a week ago in the second half of a miniseries at Portland. After being sidelined for each of the past two games, the New Orleans starting point guard is listed as questionable for Friday’s home matchup vs. Denver, due to a right hip flexor strain. Meanwhile, JJ Redick (trade pending) and Nicolo Melli (trade pending) are listed as out.
Denver’s injury list prior to Wednesday’s game in Tampa against Toronto included Gary Harris (adductor), Monte Morris (quad) and Greg Whittington (knee). All three Nuggets were out vs. the Raptors.
