Los Angeles Lakers have announced that Lonzo Ball has underwent a successful surgery after sustaining a knee injury.

The National Basketball Association’s side announced that Ball will recover in time after a successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

The point guard is expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of training camp, but they did not specify when Ball will return to court.

However, speculation is that the player, considering the nature of his operation, it’s reasonable to suspect that won’t be for several weeks.

Before undergoing the surgery, Ball received a platelet-rich plasma injection to his left knee as a form a treatment meant to address a torn meniscus he suffered last season.

Moreover, Ball was cleared to resume on-court basketball activities, but news followed that he required surgery on his left knee.

Ball missed stretches of the 2017/18 season due to a left shoulder sprain and multiple left knee injuries and this was a knee sprain, suffered in January.

Meanwhile, Ball was diagnosed with a left knee contusion in March, but LA Lakers will hope to have their star fully fit sooner, rather than later.
