Report: Hornets G LaMelo Ball set to return Friday

Charlotte Hornets point guard LaMelo Ball is expected to return Friday night against the San Antonio Spurs, ESPN reported.

Ball has been out since Nov. 26 with a right ankle sprain but participated in shootaround on Friday morning in San Antonio. The Hornets (8-27) are just 3-17 since his injury.

Ball, 22, is averaging a career-high 24.7 points a game along with 5.5 rebounds and 8.2 assists in 15 games (all starts) this season.

In four seasons with the Hornets, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 draft has averaged 19.9 points, 7.4 assists and 6.3 rebounds in 177 games (157 starts).

He appeared in just 36 games last season because of a broken right ankle. He was limited to 51 games as a rookie due to injuries.
