Lonzo Ball Is Set to Resume Ramping Up His Rehab

Chicago Bulls

Billy Donovan finally provided reporters with an update on starting point guard Lonzo Ball.

The last we heard, Ball would have to take a brief 10-day break from his rehab process due to the fact that his surgically repaired knee was not responding well. Now, with that break officially over, Ball is set to restart his ramp-up process.

To be clear, no potential return timetable has been provided, and Donovan did stress this would be a gradual process. Ball has clearly taken much longer than expected to work his way back, so the last thing the Bulls will want to do is risk pushing him too hard and thus extend this process even further.

All we can do now is wait and see how Ball responds to rehab this time around. I find it really hard to imagine he is on the floor by the end of the regular season, but if the Bulls clinch a first-round series, perhaps we can hold out hope Ball is ready by then.
