LAS VEGAS -- Lonzo Ball left Sunday night's game against Dallas with tightness in his right calf and did not return.

The Lakers promising rookie suffered the injury in the third quarter and departed with 6:26 remaining in the third quarter of the Las Vegas summer league semifinals. The team said he was available to play if needed but the Lakers were cautious with their No. 2 overall pick.

With Magic Johnson, GM Rob Pelinka and coach Luke Walton watching on, Ball was having his best shooting night of the summer league, draining five-of-seven shots, including two-of-three 3-pointers, for 16 points.
