Lonzo Ball questionable for Tuesday home game vs. Lakers
Lonzo Ball was sidelined for a January game against his former NBA team, the Los Angeles Lakers. It’s possible the point guard will miss the second meeting of 2020-21 vs. the Lakers on Tuesday as well. Ball was listed as questionable on New Orleans’ official injury report, released Monday afternoon, with a right hip flexor strain. Meanwhile, Pelicans reserve guard JJ Redick remains out due to right heel soreness.
The Lakers listed three players as out on their Monday official report, including LeBron James (right ankle sprain), Anthony Davis (right calf strain) and Jared Dudley (right MCL tear).
