|Lonzo Ball: 'Nowhere close' to returning|
Bulls head coach Billy Donovan said before Saturday's game against the Magic that Ball (knee) is "nowhere close" to returning and the team will have a formal conversation about a cut-off date if his condition doesn't improve over the All-Star break, Julia Poe of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Scoop: It's looking increasingly unlikely that Ball will appear in a game this season. Despite making tangible progress this month through light running and dunking, Ball is still experiencing significant discomfort in his surgically-repaired left knee. Fantasy managers still holding onto Ball in redraft leagues are probably safe to drop him, especially if those leagues end in mid-to-late March rather than April.
