    "we're going to make the playoffs, and Lonzo Ball will lead us there, and Lebron wants to come to LA to play with him. I already spoke it into....."

    Players shouldn't be labeled injury-prone from a casual ankle sprain. Landing on another player's foot is like 99% luck. I understand the frustration of not being able to see Lonzo play but some posts are just ridiculous.

    Hamstring vs Kentucky
    Leg in Summer League (3 games)
    Ankle vs Denver (3 games and counting)

    He's been injured and missed parts of games, or entire games, more often than not in last 12 games.

    Is he injury prone? I don't know. Small sample size. But it's becoming a trend. I wouldn't bet on him playing more than 50 games this year, but I hope he does.

    Meh, rub some dirt and spit on that ankle, make that shot against actual in-game defense while wearing a real man’s haircut and I’ll be impressed.

    Just here to remind some of you guys called Dlo all sorts of names when he sprained his ankle for the first time. Good times.

    To be fair, Ball limped a bit, and tried to keep playing on it. Russ rolled around on the ground like he had a compound fracture.

    I'm not sure why the hamstring vs Kentucky even matters if he played through it?

    Kobe was never full healthy in his prime. Does that make him injury prone?

    In my estimation he's had 2 minor injuries. Both of which he tried to play through, stopped by the training staff.

    Quit crying and get on the gah damn court. We need to build chemistry asap and stop holding guys out.

    Ball needs to get his butt out there tomorrow...and not be wearing BBB shoes

    Yep. Let me know when he actually misses real games.

    Labeling him injury prone already is ridiculous.

    It's a fact: he's missed a lot of time with various small injuries. It's the textbook definition of injury prone. He doesn't have to have a catastrophic injury to be prone to injury.

    It feels like to me that our Training Staff is just being extra careful during Summer League & PreSeason with any minor injury.. Been hard to build chemistry. I don't think we've really seen our lineup play significant time together yet, at all.

    I'm glad we don't have nothing but blind loyal fans that only see the silver lining in everything. Having a realistic perspective, or contrary thoughts, even if wrong is quite healthy.

    Like Chick or Stu calling bad basketball bad basketball.

    The sky is falling approach is a bit much for me, but it's better than fans arguing over the 4 man race on our team for rookie of the year, while dismissing the rest of the league.
