Amidst a two-year hiatus from the NBA court due to a severe knee injury, Chicago Bulls point guard Lonzo Ball may be gearing up for a much-anticipated return next season.

Recent reports suggest a surge in optimism surrounding the 26-year-old’s potential comeback to the league after a prolonged absence.

According to insights from K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago, sources close to Ball are increasingly confident about his prospects of resuming play in the upcoming season.

While the buzz surrounding Ball’s potential return is palpable, caution remains warranted as he has yet to commence full-contact practices or engage in 5-on-5 gameplay.

Despite the uncertainties, both Ball and the Bulls organization are hopeful for a successful comeback, with the team prepared to offer him another opportunity to showcase his skills.

With Ball’s contract situation in mind, the Bulls face strategic decisions ahead, considering the financial implications and his contractual obligations.

Under his current four-year, $80 million contract, Ball is poised to enter the 2024-25 season with a player option, which, if exercised, will see him earn $21 million.

Given the substantial investment and Ball’s potential impact on the team’s performance, the Bulls are likely to prioritize his rehabilitation and return to full fitness.
