Ball scored two points (1-9 FG, 0-7 3Pt) in a loss to the Mavericks on Saturday, adding four rebounds, two assists and one block.
Fantasy owners are going to want to forget this one. In their matchup on Dec. 3, Ball also struggled mightily on both ends, allowing Luke Doncic to pour on 33 points and 18 boards in just 28 minutes. Ball didn't fair much better on either end in this one, posting a season low in points, and matching a season low in assists. After setting or tying season highs in points, assists, steals and blocks in his last game, the 22-year old's production fell off a cliff in this one. Look for Ball to try to get back on track against the Pistons on Monday.
Ball tallied 20 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 43 minutes during Thursday's 139-132 overtime loss to the Suns.
Ball finished with season highs in points, dimes, swats and minutes while matching season highs in steals and threes. He hasn't been driving into the teeth of the defense much, but Ball put forth his best effort of the campaign in this one. He'll look to build on it heading into Saturday's matchup versus the Mavericks.
Ball amassed 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and one block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 107-104 loss to the Thunder.
Ball returned to the lineup following a two-game absence due to illness and snapped a five-game streak in which he failed to earn more than 25 minutes. He drew the start with Kenrich Williams (ankle) sidelined, and unless Williams is ready to return for Tuesday's matchup versus the Mavericks, Ball will likely draw another start.
Ball (illness) will play Sunday against the Thunder, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
After two straight absences due to an illness, Ball will return to the floor Sunday. The former UCLA star will presumably enter the starting lineup with Frank Jackson coming off the bench.
Ball (illness) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Thunder.
A stomach virus has forced Ball to miss the past two games. More information on his status for Sunday's game may arrive following the team's morning shootaround. Even if he's cleared to play, he may come off the bench as he has during his past three appearances.
