Lonzo: “It’s painful for me to even climb some stairs”

Recovery doesn’t look good Lonzo Ball. After a summer it is speculation due to the lack of information, Arturas Karnisovas having stated that the player was fine but with progress “slower than would be ideal”Confirmation arrived that the Bulls point guard was going to have to operate on his left knee. A margin period was given after the arthroscopy, but it can be quite prolonged: from 4-6 weeks to not being there for the entire season. It is the fear that runs through Chicago after the statements offered by the player in the half day.

Ball zoomed into the preseason launch press conference and surprised with his answers:

“Really, I can’t even run, neither that nor jump”

“There is a range, between thirty and sixty degrees with the knee bent, in which I have no strength and I can not stand up. Until I can do that I won’t be able to play. I did rehab and it went well, but not to the point of going out there and being able to sprint. So surgery is the next step.”

“It’s every day, even climbing stairs is painful”

“I understand that they are going to look at what I have to see if it is something that does not appear in the medical examination. Because it is clear that something is not right in there. They are going to see it well and what has to be done will be done ”

Lonzo was part of the new momentum of the Bulls, especially at the hands of DeMar DeRozan but also other new faces such as Alex Caruso, Ayo Dosunmu, Javonte Green or Zo himself, a lively and fun game from which, however, he could only be a part of it for a while. He stayed in 35 games played until he had to stop due to injury.

“For me it is the third operation. I think that the previous time I believed that I was going to be able to reach the ‘playoffs’, I believed and we all believed that it would be the case, but it was not like that. This time we have to do it as slowly as we need so that it returns to 100% “Ball recounts.

Lonzo was in his day the number two of his promotion, only behind a Markelle Fultz also destroyed by injuries. The Lakers bet heavily on him, he entered the transfer to the Pelicans for Anthony Davis and has ended up in a Chicago that still expects the best from him. He will be 25 years old this month when he has only been in the competition for five years.

Having this new information from the player himself, the coach, Billy Donovan, was asked about the possibility of having to find an alternative plan in case Lonzo cannot be there for the entire season. “I think we will”he snapped.
