The Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig is getting his “Close UP” with his supporter of the L.A. Lakers’ rookie Lonzo Ball, Gentry says: “I think he’s got an old soul and is mature beyond his age and years. He’s got great feel for the game. He’s the type of guy anyone would love playing with because he’s such an unselfish guy.” And the beat continues!

Lakers guard Lonzo Ball, who was injured in last week’s game at Houston, underwent an MRI which revealed a Grade 3 left ankle sprain. Ball is expected to miss 4-6 weeks and updates will be provided as appropriate.
