Fantasy basketball: Why the stage is set for LaMelo Ball to thrive upon his return

Fantasy basketball managers sure miss the Ball brothers, but there is good news! One of them may return soon.

Yep, Charlotte Hornets PG LaMelo Ball is on the mend from his sprained left ankle! Ball originally hurt the ankle in an exhibition game in early October, then he made his season debut in mid-November, and in his third game he stepped on the foot of a fan at courtside and re-injured the ankle because... of course he did. Fantasy managers and Hornets fans cried but things are looking better now.
