Lonzo Ball will return to the court Friday against Dallas, suiting up for the first time in almost six weeks after suffering a sprained tendon in his left knee January 13.

It's been a while since the Los Angeles Lakers have been able to feature Lonzo Ball in their lineup.

The goal of the Junior Basketball Association, which is scheduled to launch this summer, is to "get the NCAA to change and pay players", said Lonzo Ball, whose likeness was the model for the league's black-and-gold logo. "[Ball] is a special young talent". From the outside looking in, watching the Lakers play, he is very good and goes at his own pace, which is a strength to have at a young age.
