Lonzo Ball was blossoming into one of the best point guards in the entire NBA. Although this might be a bit much, he was definitely one of the most versatile. He could pass the ball well, he was an elite defender, and his three-point shot was finally getting good. However, at the beginning of 2022, he ran into some issues with his knee. He had surgery for the issue, but shockingly, he never got better. In fact, his knee continued to hurt him and he was unable to do any physical activity.
Subsequently, he continued to consult with doctors. This led him to the decision that he needed to get a second surgery. Following this surgery, things still didn't get any better for Lonzo. It was a stunning turn of events that confused doctors around the country. According to Tristan Thompson, Ball's doctors had no idea what was going on. There was even a time when it seemed like Lonzo had an injury that was the first of its kind. Overall, one can imagine just how confusing this has all been for him.
Lonzo Ball Wants To Get Right
Now, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Lonzo Ball is going to get a third surgery on his knee. No, you are not reading that incorrectly. The Bulls' point guard will now get a third surgery. However, there actually seems to be quite a bit of optimism about this. They think this could bring Ball back into the game. Although, the catch is that he will likely have to miss a whole other year of basketball. It is a brutal situation, but it is a necessary evil when you consider all that Lonzo has been through.
At this point, fans just want Lonzo to be okay. They are hoping that he will be able to come back to the game he loves at some point. It's hard to watch a player go through something like that, and hopefully, his third surgery is a success. Let us know what you think of this ongoing situation, in the comments below.
