Lonzo Ball undergoing knee surgery, out for Bulls 6-8 weeks
Chicago Bulls point guard Lonzo Ball will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and is expected to return in 6-8 weeks, the Bulls announced Thursday.
Ball should be able to return by mid-late March as the Bulls are gearing up for the postseason. Coby White, Alex Caruso, and Ayo Dosunmu are all in line for more work while Ball is sidelined. DeMar DeRozan could also take on more ball-handling responsibilities.
White is averaging 32.7 FanDuel points and 36.3 minutes over the last three games with Ball unavailable. Dosunmu is averaging 42.8 FanDuel points and 38.8 minutes in that same span. DDR is averaging 42.2 FanDuel points across eight games without Lonzo this season.
