After Lonzo Ball suffered an ankle injury after colliding with James Ennis III back in January, at first glance it didn’t seem too bad. X-rays were negative but an MRI showed a sprained left ankle involving a torn ligament. Still, no surgery needed.

Doctors said he would need four to six weeks from Jan. 20 to make a full recovery.
