Lonzo Ball will undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair his ailing left knee.
The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Friday that their point guard will have the surgery. Ball has a torn meniscus in his left knee, sources told ESPN last month.
Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka says that Ball will be ready for the start of the season.
Ball has spent much of the offseason trying to go over all options for how to treat the knee, including platelet-rich plasma injection treatment and staying off the knee for a month after the season ended, as ESPN reported in June.
Ball was able to work in the weight room to try to add muscle but had only returned to basketball activities on the court briefly last month.
