The Charlotte Hornets star guard LaMelo Ball is anticipated to be sidelined for a considerable duration due to a significant sprain in his right ankle.
Recent tests indicate that the ankle is not fractured, a notable relief considering he underwent surgery on the same ankle last season.
Both Ball and the team are expected to adopt a cautious strategy in managing the injury. Currently, Ball is utilizing a walking boot and crutches.
Prior to the injury, Ball had been maintaining impressive statistics, averaging 24.7 points, 8.2 assists, and 5.5 rebounds per game.
