Ever since former No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball joined the Chicago Bulls, things haven’t gone as planned for the once-promising young point guard from UCLA.

Although Ball has always struggled to stay healthy throughout his NBA career, as he never played more than 63 games in an 82-game regular season, he has gotten better and better with more time on the floor.

During his short stints with the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans, Ball showed some significant progress in his game, which resulted in the Bulls signing him to a contract once he became an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2021.

Since then, he’s only played in 35 games for the Bulls before dealing with a knee injury that has seriously threatened his NBA career, as the consensus has been that he’ll never play another game in the league.

Fortunately, things may finally be looking up for Ball, with the latest report suggesting that he could get back on the basketball floor next season, according to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago via NBA Central.

With the expectation that his playing career was seemingly over, this is a promising sign that he will be able to get back to work for the Bulls, even if it is for one season.

Ball will have one last chance to prove his worth to the Bulls and teams around the league if this turns out to be true and salvage what was thought to be a promising career in the NBA.

Only time will tell if Ball can bounce back and regain his form as one of the better point guards in the league.
