Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball won’t play in Monday night’s Summer League final against the Portland Trail Blazers due to a calf strain in his right leg.
The No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft suffered the injury during Sunday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks. Ball left in the third quarter of their semifinal matchup after posting 16 points and 10 assists in a winning effort.
Lonzo Ball leads the SL in assists by a lot (9.3, 2nd is 7.8) and is 3rd in steals (2.5). Up there in scoring (16.3) and boards (7.7) too.

The Lakers won their last game when Ball sat due to injury, beating the Sacramento Kings earlier in the month. His latest injury is still a tough blow for Los Angeles, after seeing Ball excel throughout their five-game winning streak while creating headlines every time he put on a different pair of sneakers.
Lonzo Ball now has 4 games with 10 assists.
