The Los Angeles Lakers expect to be without Lonzo Ball for at least another week.

Lonzo Ball will need another week to recover from an ankle injury.

Lonzo Ball #2 of the Los Angeles Lakers looks on during the first half of a game against the Charlotte Hornets at Staples Center on January 5, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. But, he was later diagnosed with a bone bruise, which delayed his return. Initially, the team reported that he'll be out for four to six weeks.

Biden clarifies 'decent guy' comment about Pence
While he has not confirmed whether he will run, he revealed during an interview on Tuesday that he is close to a decision. Charles, Illinois, last fall, Biden called Pence a "decent guy" but noted he doesn't agree with many of Pence's policies.

Ball, 21, is averaging 9.9 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds in 47 games on the season. LeBron James missed significant playing time for the first time in his career with a groin injury and other players like Kyle Kuzma have also missed time. The Lakers posted the fifth-worst defensive rating in the National Basketball Association during the span that Ball was out. "A guy that's very, very good defensively", James added. Not only is he a gifted playmaker, but his aggressiveness on the defensive end has been his main contribution to the Lakers. It will then match up with the Nuggets on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time).

The team has been riddled with a lot of distraction throughout the season.

With Rajon Rondo and LeBron James finally healthy, the Lakers can start walking the walk instead of talking the talk. Many believe that once he returns, the Lakers will get that much-needed boost to make a run at the playoffs.
