The Los Angeles Lakers need all the help they can get, and that includes injured point guard Lonzo Ball. The UCLA product has been out with a sprained ankle and has not played since a game against the Houston Rockets on Jan. 19.

Things are getting antsy in a City of Angels, and it’s not clear just how long LeBron James will put up with what’s happening with this Lakers roster. Ball significantly helps the LA defense, which is just one reason they’d like him back.

Lakers fans were hoping that Ball could return soon, but according to multiple reports the guard will not be evaluated until next week.

The Lakers look like long shots to make the Western Conference playoffs, even with Ball returning as soon as next week.

This season might already be over for Los Angeles, and if they fail to make postseason in LeBron’s first year, we should see some major shake-ups.
