LaMelo Ball Hit With Horrible Injury News

LaMelo Ball is easily one of the most fun young players in the entire NBA. Overall, he is someone who plays the game with a lot of jump in his step. Additionally, he is one of those guys who is always doing a great job when it comes to highlight reel plays. His passes are off-the-charts impressive, and there is no doubt that he will be someone to watch for a very long time. If the Hornets were to start surrounding him with other stars, then that team would most definitely launch themselves into the postseason.

Unfortunately, LaMelo has been a bit injury prone over the last few years. He has gone down with a few ankle injuries and they have kept him out of the lineup for some time. Consequently, the Hornets have sunken to the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. At this point, they are one of those teams hoping to get Victor Wembanyama. Last night, Melo got injured yet again, this time while playing the Detroit Pistons. Although his team won, Melo had to leave the game early with a non-contact ankle injury.

LaMelo Ball Goes Down

When the game was over, Shams Charania of The Athletic took to Twitter and reported that Melo had suffered a right ankle fracture. Simply put, the point guard is now done for the season. There are only about 20 games left in the season, with a month of action to go. Having said that, it seems like the best course of action would be to shut LaMelo down and allow him to come back next year. It's not ideal, but the Hornets really have no choice right now.

Hopefully, LaMelo is able to come back stronger than ever. He is the face of the Hornets, and their hopes are riding on his shoulders. However, Michael Jordan should probably think about giving his young point guard some help. It would go a long way in making sure that Ball isn't left having to carry a team. All while putting tremendous strain on his body. Stay tuned to HNHH for all of the latest updates from around the sports world.
