Chicago Bulls guard Lonzo Ball is expected to miss at least a few months after undergoing another knee surgery, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Doctors reportedly believe they've addressed the knee issue that's been bothering Ball since January, and he should be able to return at some point this season.

On the eve of the procedure, Ball described the discomfort he was experiencing both on and off the court. The Bulls guard hasn't been able to run or jump, and even everyday activities like going up stairs have been "painful."

Ball was limited to 35 appearances in his first year with Chicago, averaging 13 points, 5.4 boards, 5.1 assists, and 1.8 steals. He's entering the second season of a four-year, $80-million contract.

Ayo Dosunmu and veteran Goran Dragic are expected to split minutes at the point during Ball's absence.
