NBL – LaMelo Ball (Illawarra Hawks)

As per @BleacherReport, #NBL20 LaMelo Ball (foot) remains out indefinitely

Point guard LaMelo Ball remains out indefinitely for the Australian National Basketball League’s Illawarra Hawks as he recovers from a bone bruise he suffered in December, according to ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. Ball has reportedly been told to refrain from placing any weight on his foot and is wearing a walking boot and using crutches.

Four weeks was the inital time frame for Balls return from injury but it now looks like its progressing very slowly.

Sunday Dech remains a great NBL Fantasy option while Ball is out with his foot injury.

Dech is averaging 22 NBL Fantasy points in his last 5 and is priced at $935k.
