Lonzo Returns to Full-Contact; LeBron Will Play Sunday

For the first time since undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in July, Lonzo Ball was a full participant in practice.

At the Lakers’ third day of training camp, the sophomore point guard was able to go through every drill, including a full-contact “controlled scrimmage,” per head coach Luke Walton.

“Lonzo practiced in full today,” Walton said. He looked really good. It was good to see him out there cutting, making his reads and his passes.”

Though Ball — who missed 20 games due to injury last season — wasn’t able to scrimmage five-on-five this offseason, he did take the opportunity to work in the film room and weight room.
