LaMelo Ball out 1-2 weeks due to ankle injury

While the Hornets are fortunate to have their star player avoiding a serious injury, he will be missing some time which is not ideal. Per the MRI, the Hornets have revealed LaMelo Ball to be out for 1-2 weeks with a Grade 2 left ankle sprain.

If the injury only keeps him out for a week, then Ball will most likely miss four games of the season. If he misses another week (to bring it to two weeks out), then Ball will most likely miss eight games of the opening season.

Per the team, Ball’s return to full basketball activities will be determined by how he responds to rehab and treatment. The 1-2 weeks is a real timeline, but things are subject to change – for the better or for the worst.

Per Hornet’s head coach Steve Clifford, Mason Plumlee (foot) is also dealing with an injury. No timetable given for his return, ruled out for Wednesday’s preseason game against the 76ers. Also, per Clifford, Terry Rozier will start in place of LaMelo Ball if he’s not a go for opening night.

His road to recovery begins now and there is a slight possibility of him playing on October 19th, which is what everyone is holding their breath on.
