Ball is expected to return before training camp, per Sam Amick of USA Today. An official timetable for recovery will be provided once the operation is complete.
Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported June 29 that Ball had been diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his left knee and was expected to be healthy for the start of training camp.
The 2017 No. 2 overall pick was hampered by left knee pain throughout his rookie season and missed 15 games between Jan. 15 and Feb. 15 because of a sprained MCL.
The Lakers will have the luxury of leaning on veteran Rajon Rondo to shoulder the load at point guard in the event Ball—who averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.9 rebounds per game as a rookie—isn't 100 percent when the 2018-19 season opens.
