Lakers News: Lonzo Ball Only Out 1-2 Weeks With Mild Calf Strain

Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball missed the Vegas Summer League Championship Game with a calf strain, and after undergoing an MRI, the injury turned out not to be anything serious.

Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports that Ball has a mild calf strain and will be shut down for the next 1-2 weeks.

The Lakers have minimal depth at point guard behind Ball and are looking to sign a veteran in the coming weeks to serve as his backup.

Ball won Summer League MVP after averaging 16.3 points, 9.3 assists, 7.7 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.0 blocks per game.
