Hornets point guard LaMelo Ball re-injured his left ankle in Wednesday’s loss to the Pacers, forcing him to exit the game.
Ball suffered a sprained ankle, which is the same injury that caused him to miss the first 13 games of the season. He made his season debut on Saturday.
He suffered a Grade 2 sprain in the preseason.
Ball, 21, is 6-foot-7 and coming off an All-Star season, averaging 20.1 points, 7.6 assists and 6.7 rebounds in 75 games in 2021-22. He’s averaging 16.0 points in his two games this year.
