Lonzo Ball Suffers Calf Injury During Lakers vs. Mavericks in NBA Summer League

Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball suffered tightness in his calf during Sunday’s Las Vegas Summer League game against the Dallas Mavericks, Spectrum SportsNet’s Mike Trudell reported.

Ball exited the game with 16 points, four rebounds and 10 assists.

The No. 2 overall pick entered the semifinals having built a strong candidacy to be summer league MVP. In his first five appearances, he had averaged 16.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 9.2 assists.

While summer league basketball is far from the pressure cooker the regular season will be for Ball, he has made a strong impression in Vegas:

Since Ball’s injury doesn’t appear to be too serious, the Lakers’ primary concern will be his availability for the summer league title game on Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers should they beat the Mavericks.

Los Angeles would undoubtedly be at a disadvantage without its best player on the floor.
