Lonzo Ball to miss one week with shoulder sprain

Netflix

The Los Angeles Lakers (11-20) have lost six of their last six games including a 95-92 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers in which Kyle Kuzma had 18 points, seven rebounds and three assists. But the Lakers have to be very cautious too, to not only protect one of their best young players but also protect themselves from the public ire of LaVar Ball if they rush his son back into action too soon. Kuzma leads in points while Ball tops in rebounds (6.9) and assists (7.1) per game.

The Lakers have played on Christmas 43 times, second-most in National Basketball Association history, behind the New York Knicks, who have played on Christmas 51 times.

For Laker fans, their #1 fear has become a reality: Lonzo Ball will miss time with an injury.
