Ball returning to Lakers' lineup, will be on minutes limit

Ball returning to Lakers' lineup, will be on minutes limit

We had a couple more to go in case that game got close again, we were going to save a couple of minutes.

"Everybody knows everybody's getting paid", Ball told reporters,". might as well make it legal".

But, the team announced, the move comes with some caveats - a minutes restriction and a ban on back-to-back games for now. They play their next two and seven of their next eight at home.

While Kuzma did not speak to reporters in the wake of the allegations, fellow rookie Lonzo Ball took a hard stand against the NCAA and the very idea of amateurism. Ball's injury was later diagnosed as a sprained MCL, and he's missed the Lakers' last 15 games while recovering.

Also, the Lakers coach chose to see how Ball and new addition Isaiah Thomas would play together for the first time this season. Most notably, Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson are gone, having been shipped to Cleveland at the trade deadline for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and a first-round pick. They combined to account for 10 of the Lakers' 32 assists. The rookie point guard has been out since January 13 with a sprained MCL, and a lot has changed since then.

Lakers head coach Luke Walton already ruled his rookie point guard out for Saturday night's game against the Sacramento Kings on the second night of a back-to-back.

Ball said he didn't accept any money while playing in college. Walton will likely be forced to adjust his preferred 1-through-5 switching defense - a pleasant surprise for the Lakers this season when they played at their best - based on personnel when the 5-foot-9 Thomas is on the floor.

Kuzma, whose mother has reportedly denied the allegation, was named first-team all-conference in the Pac-12 as a junior in 2016-17 for the Utes.
