“We All Wish Him a Speedy Recovery” Gordon Hayward Feels Sorry for LaMelo Ball’s Wrist Injury

LaMelo Ball

The miraculous season of LaMelo Ball ended for good when he suffered a wrist injury. The initial diagnosis revealed that Ball has suffered a fractured bone in his right wrist. He was on course to win the Rookie of the Year award, having separated himself from the rest of the crowd by a country mile.

Well wishes for his return to the NBA have poured in from every direction, including a message from his teammate Gordon Hayward. He said, “I feel really bad for him”. 

LaMelo Ball had such a positive impact on the squad that the Hornets were contending for the playoffs for the first time in years. However, the doctors have ruled him out for an indefinite period.

Gordon Hayward reflecting upon the injury of LaMelo Ball

LaMelo Ball’s injury did not affect the league performance of the Hornets in any way. They marched on their crusade with a 100-97 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Monday. In the post-game press conference, Hayward talked about the wrist injury of Ball.

He said, “Obviously, we’re very disappointed. Injuries suck. He was playing at a really high level. He was really great for our team as he just kept going. I think we all feel for Melo.”

Hayward continued, “I think it was nice for us to get a win in our first game without him. We all wish him a speedy recovery. He was truly important to our team.”

LaMelo Ball was leading the KIA Rookie Ladder ever since the start of the second half of the season. The 19-year-old was also declared as the rookie of the month in January and February.

This is not the first time that players have suffered season-ending injuries in their rookie seasons. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, two players who are taking the NBA by storm, suffered injuries due to which they could not take part in their first seasons.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that LaMelo Ball is destined for greatness. He has collected accolades from veterans and legends alike. When he returns to the court after tending to his injury, he will surely look to pick up where he left off.
