Lonzo Ball will return to the court and play alongside LeBron James for the first time this preseason on Wednesday night against Golden State.
Ball could play between 10 to 30 minutes when the Lakers and Warriors meet in Las Vegas, according to coach Luke Walton
"It's frustrating when you play basketball your whole life and then it gets taken away from you for a little bit. But I am happy to be back."
Ball said he has added about 15 to 20 pounds to his wiry 6-foot-6 frame after spending much of the summer in the weight room and film room while rehabbing his knee.
"Just being more consistent, hitting open shots and being able to guard whoever they want me to guard," Ball added of what will be different in his game this season.
James posted an Instagram picture of Ball guarding James in a practice on Monday with the caption, "It's about that time Young King. Let's Get It, you was born for this moment!"
Ball is anxious to play alongside LeBron, who was his basketball idol.
"We will be playing fast, I will be getting the ball to him a lot. He can do the same, get out and push it, so that will be a very interesting dynamic."
Get ready for the new Showtime Lakers.
BronZo will be fun to watch!
