This offseason, the Chicago Bulls signed veteran point guard Goran Dragic. While it’s clear that Lonzo Ball makes a major impact while on the court; the team’s newfound depth at point guard should bring fans some comfort.
Lonzo Ball is going to continue being evaluated by the team. Shelbourne points out that Ball’s initial diagnoses in January claimed that Ball would be out for 6-8 weeks. Throughout the offseason there has been tons of speculations from coaches, executives, and even LaVar Ball. Now, at the beginning of September, fans are still unsure when to expected Ball back on the court.
Shelbourne also pointed out that the Bulls were 27-13 before Ball went down with injury last season. Fans will be anxious for his return. For now, training camp starts up later this month, and the Bulls’ first preseason game takes place on October 4th.
