OF course the conspiracy theorists think this has something to do with LeBron James. Now he can’t be trade bait if he’s injured. Check out the tweets below, it seems everyone is very suspicious of the timing of this ‘injury.’

Lonzo Ball tore his own meniscus so he could stay a Laker. If that's not commitment to the organization, I don't know what is,

Lonzo Ball suffered a left knee contusion during the season, got a PRP injection earlier this month…and now it's finally diagnosed as a torn meniscus? Odd. I'm wondering when this tear actually occurred. Hope Lonzo recovers well. https://t.co/QbIjtc4ell
