LaMelo Ball (ankle) remaining out Monday for Hornets

Charlotte Hornets guard LaMelo Ball (ankle) is out for Monday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

What It Means:

Ball will remain out for a sixth consecutive contest. Ish Smith, Nick Smith, and Bryce McGowens should continue to play more minutes until Ball returns. Brandon Miller and Miles Bridges also stand to benefit.

numberFire's models project McGowens for 21.3 minutes and 13.6 FanDuel points on Monday. Per our NBA Heat Map, the Hornets' implied total (107.5) and the game total (227.0) are both the lowest of the day.
