Chicago Bulls point guard Lonzo Ball will miss the remainder of the season following another setback in his recovery from surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee, the team announced on Wednesday.
Ball’s final game was on Jan. 14, and he had surgery two weeks later.
Coach Billy Donovan said Tuesday it was “disappointing” and there would be a “meeting of the minds” to determine the next steps.
Sources: Bulls guard Lonzo Ball is expected to be shut down for the remainder of the season. Ball has been rehabbing from meniscus surgery in late January, but continues to feel discomfort amid several recovery methods to return to action and a bone bruise in his knee.

There is still a final decision to be made, but there’s less and less optimism that Lonzo Ball will return this season, sources tell ESPN. As Billy Donovan said, there’s a conversation among the Bulls and Ball’s reps in the coming days. https://t.co/24soc5gDpd
