Once again, Lonzo Ball is afraid to face De’Aaron Fox.
According to Laker analyst Mike Bresnahan, a sprained ankle will likely keep Ball out against Sacramento on Sunday.
Lonzo Ball limped over to reporters on his sprained ankle, said it felt a little better but wasn't sure he'd play Sunday vs. Kings.

Back in the NBA Summer League, Ball backed out of their first matchup following UCLA’s loss to Kentucky in the Sweet 16 due to a sore groin.
Fox tweeted, and later deleted, a single emoji to indicate how he was feeling.
For those keeping track at home, Fox finished with a career-high 39 points to end Ball’s collegiate career.
The anticipated rematch will have to wait… again.
