Lonzo Ball has not played since mid-January due to a meniscus injury in his left knee. The 24-year-old point guard continues his recovery and is making good progress, according to the Bulls head coach Billy Donovan.

Via K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports:

“Every day he seems to be improving. I think that the progress he has made has been steady. He keeps showing that progress. And that’s really what we all hope to continue to see,” coach Billy Donovan said on ESPN2 during Sunday’s Bulls-Knicks summer league contest about Lonzo Ball. “We’re obviously all hopeful that it will happen faster. But he is making progress.”

This past season Ball averaged 13 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 34.6 per game. He played 35 regular season games for Chicago.
