As soon as the news emerged last week that Lonzo Ball had a torn meniscus, it was obvious where the news came from – his father, LaVar Ball.
But on his podcast Wednesday, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski had this to say about Ball’s injury:
“I know this – the team didn’t want that information out … I think there’s a belief around there, that the information was put out there from around Ball’s sphere, to keep from getting traded. If teams knew he was having knee surgery, you’re not trading for him. There was concern in there he might be put in a deal.”
Today, Woj said it’s not a lock that Lonzo gets surgery.
LeBron isn’t a week into his Lakers tenure and we’ve already got a leaked report about Lonzo’s injury, and now LaVar besmirching the name of Rajon Rondo.
Yeah, this is going to be a trainwreck.
