LaMelo Ball nearing return to action for the Hornets

LaMelo Ball nearing return to action for the Hornets
By STEVE REEDApril 20, 2021 GMT
It’s unclear at this point when he’ll be ready to play in a game.
Ball sustained a fractured right wrist during the Hornets’ March 20 game against the Los Angeles Clippers and has not played since.
Ball underwent further evaluation on his wrist Monday by Dr. Michelle Carlson of The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. The cast was removed and a CT scan confirmed the wrist has healed.
Ball, the No. 3 overall selection in last year’s NBA draft, was among the leading candidates for Rookie of the Year honors prior to the injury. He won Eastern Conference rookie of the month three times and is averaging 15.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.59 steals in 41 contests.

There are many ways to rationalize the Portland Trail Blazers’ poor showing during Sunday’s 109-101 loss at the Charlotte Hornets.
Coach Terry Stotts pointed out one in particular, noting that on Saturday the Phoenix Suns (40-16), owners of the second-best record in the NBA, lost 111-85 to San Antonio (27-28) when the Spurs rested three key players, DeMar DeRozan, Patty Mills and Jakob Poeltl.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (The Charlotte Observer) - Charlotte Hornets rookie LaMelo Ball’s fractured right wrist has healed and he’s been cleared to start individual basketball activity.
When Ball might play again this season is yet to be determined.
Ball’s cast was removed and a CT scan confirmed the wrist has healed. He has been cleared to return to individual basketball activity, the team announced Monday night.

Charlotte Hornets rookie guard LaMelo Ball was cleared to resume individual basketball activity after a CT scan confirmed his broken right wrist has healed, the team announced Monday.
Ball sustained the injury on March 20 in a game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He was examined by Dr. Michelle Carlson of The Hospital for Special Surgery in New York before receiving the green light on Monday.
The team said updates about his status and return to play would be “provided as appropriate.” ESPN reported that Ball could return to action in seven to 10 days.
The No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, Ball has appeared in 41 games and is averaging 15.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.6 steals. Since moving into the starting lineup on Feb. 1, he averaged 19.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.7 steals in 21 games.

When Charlotte Hornets star rookie LaMelo Ball went down with a fractured right wrist during a March 19 game against the Los Angeles Clippers, it seems as if his initial NBA campaign was over.
Ball, 19, ended up undergoing surgery on said wrist with no timetable for a return. The good news at this point was that the Hornets did not officially rule the NBA Rookie of the Year favorite out for the remainder of the season.
We now have some more good news on this front. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Ball’s right wrist is completely healed. In turn, the Hornets have cleared him to return to individual basketball activities.

REPORT: LaMelo Ball could return in 7-10 days from wrist injury

LaMelo Ball will possibly return from injury. After suffering a fractured wrist earlier in the season, things are looking up for the presumed Rookie of the Year. The loss of Ball was a big one for the Charlotte Hornets, and it was thought he wouldn’t return this season. Getting him back in the lineup would be great for the 8-seed in the East that is 4-6 in their last 10 games.
The Hornets made the announcement that Ball was cleared to return to basketball activities.
There’s optimism that LaMelo Ball could be ready to return to the lineup in 7-10 days, source tells ESPN.

Jayson Tatum has come so close to a triple-double at numerous times in the past. But when he finally broke through Monday, it wasn’t really a cause for celebration.
Tatum had 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in Boston’s 102-96 loss to the Bulls at TD Garden. But his numbers that made his fantasy league owners happy didn’t make him or the Celtics especially so. Points were actually the last of the three stats to reach 10. Tatum shot 3-for-17 from the floor, 1-for-4 from 3-point range and made seven of eight free throws.

So, your NBA team, heretofore mired in mediocrity, just earned an exciting—you hope season-turning—road win against a conference rival, the San Antonio Spurs. How do you follow it up? If you said, “Jump on the next opponent, pound them early, and leave no doubt you intend to start a significant winning streak,” you may be a contender. If your answer was, “Play a lazy, gaffe-filled, barf-inducing swill-fest of a game, giving the win right back in the most demoralizing way possible,” you might be the Portland Trail Blazers.

A few quality wins have propelled the Philadelphia 76ers back into our No. 1 spot.
Joel Embiid and the 76ers have won four straight, with the past three coming against playoff teams in the LA Clippers, Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks. The Utah Jazz, meanwhile, have dropped two of their past four games, including a 12-point overtime loss to a Los Angeles Lakers squad that continues to play without injured stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
The Eastern Conference is boasting plenty of streaking teams right now: The Boston Celtics, once in danger of a date in the play-in, have won six straight to tie the Atlanta Hawks for the No. 4 seed.

Give him the mic at the next dunk contest.
The Charlotte Hornets have taken a big step back in national excitement since LaMelo Ball got injured, but there’s still one man bringing the hyper every single night: play-by-play announcer Eric Collins. Collins has gone from regional TV broadcaster to viral sensation this season, all thanks to his child-like glee when it comes to calling big moments.
The latest example came on Sunday evening, when Collins called another big dunk by Miles Bridges.

Landry Shamet added 20 points for the Nets. Kyrie Irving had 12 on the day after LaMarcus Aldridge retired after experiencing an irregular heartbeat in a game Saturday.
The Nets connected on 51% of their 3-pointers (21 for 41), with Harris (6 for 9) and Shamet (6 for 11) leading the way.

Bridges Scores Career-High 33 PTS, Hornets Fall in Fourth to Brooklyn

Card image cap

The Charlotte Hornets saw their offense finally break through a bit and fought until the very end before falling to the powerhouse Brooklyn Nets, 130-115, on Friday, April 16 at the Barclays Center.
Miles Bridges erupted for a career-high 33 points on 13-of-18 shooting (career-high-tying 6-of-10 from three), nine rebounds, two assists and two steals in the Charlotte loss. This marks the second 30-point game of Bridges’ three-year NBA career and the seventh overall by a different Hornets player this season, the most of any team in the league so far.
Charlotte got off to a much stronger start than it did 15 days ago in Brooklyn, building up a 14-point first-quarter lead before the Nets battled back to close the first half tied at 61. Both sides went back and forth throughout the third with the hosts pulling ahead by five heading into the fourth. Brooklyn then started the final frame on a 19-5 run, giving itself more than enough cushion to coast to a relatively easy home victory.

Mark Cuban: NBA Play-In Tournament a Mistake, As Mavs Chase Playoffs

Jim Davis/The Boston Globe/Getty Images
Mavs owner Mark Cuban said the play-in tournament to determine the 7th and 8th seeds is a mistake.
The Mavs are currently in 7th place and on track to play in the tournament.
The play-in tournament allows for more teams to play more meaningful games late in the season.
If the NBA regular season ended today, the Dallas Mavericks would be the 7th seed in the Western Conference and play in the new playoffs play-in tournament.
The play-in tournament will determine the final two spots in the playoffs in each conference. The 7th and 8th seeds will play each other first, with the winner clinching the 7th seed. The loser of the 7-8 matchup would then play the winner between the 9th and 10th seeds to determine the final playoff spot.

Absences Mount as Charlotte Searches for Answers on Offense
Injuries to LaMelo Ball, Gordon Hayward, Malik Monk and now PJ Washington are really starting to catch up to the Hornets now after they got swept in a three-game homestand earlier this week. The team posted an offensive rating of 104.4 across this stretch, while averaging just 94.7 points on 43% shooting and 33% from three. It appeared Charlotte generally had decent ball movement over this span and was getting solid looks – shots just weren’t falling. With a full day off between games, hopefully the Hornets have had some time to re-tinker the offense as they look to put points on the board any way they can.
