LaMelo Ball is ready to make his return after entering the health and safety protocols and missing the last six games of his team. The Hornets went on a 3-3 record during this stint.
Charlotte announced Ball could be available to play on Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers. He will join his team for the six-game road trip.
Ball has been working out with G League’s Greensboro Swarm to improve his conditioning while preparing for his return. The team officially recalled the guard from the Swarm on Thursday night.
