Billy Donovan admitted that Lonzo Ball's recovery has been "really slow" and he still has no timetable for the guard's return.
“It’s been really slow. It’s gotten better, but is he clearly without any pain? No, he’s not. He still has pain.
"We’re seeing the slow, gradual strides getting better, but I just don’t have any timetable of when he could even be back," said Donovan on Wednesday.
Ball initially injured his left knee last January 14. He underwent his first surgery on January 28.
The Bulls previously expressed hope that Ball could return sometime in early 2023.
Donovan added that Ball isn't close to the next step in his recovery.
“The next step is we’ve got to get him into some contact, but we’re not even close to that,” said Donovan.
