LaMelo Ball, the rejection | nba

When it doesn’t want…

Barely returned to the game after his long absence due to a left ankle injury, for two games in Florida against Miami then Orlando, LaMelo Ball thought he could continue his rise at home, with the reception of the Pacers. It’s grated!

With less than two minutes remaining, after scoring 26 points, the first home game of his season turned into a nightmare for the point guard who was trying to save a ball that went out of touch. Carried away by his momentum, he lost his support before twisting his ankle, having encountered the foot of a spectator in the first row.

In addition to a new defeat (125-113), the ninth in their last ten games, the Hornets again lose their master to play, even though he seemed to regain his very best level. “He was superb [hier] evening “commented Steve Clifford.

An ever-full infirmary…

Besides LaMelo Ball, the Hornets can’t empty the infirmary this season, squatted by Cody Martin who only played one game because of knee and quadriceps problems, by Gordon Hayward who missed the last eight games because of a shoulder injury, or by Dennis Smith Jr, Terry Rozier and rookie Mark Williams alternately, all three injured in an ankle.

“We all know that at some point we will have everyone with us and I can’t wait for it to come to that”adds PJ Washington, who therefore prefers to remain optimistic. “But, at the moment, the problem is that we are losing our matches so we have to find solutions to get some wins. »
