LaMelo Ball, three other Hornets placed in health protocols

The Charlotte Hornets might be exceptionally short-handed for their next couple video games. The group positioned 4 gamers — consisting of standout guard LaMelo Ball — in the NBA’s health and wellness procedures Saturday.

Ball, Jalen McDaniels, Mason Plumlee and Terry Rozier were all positioned in the procedures, the group revealed.

The Hornets did not expose whether any gamer on the group evaluated favorable for COVID-19. 

It’s uncertain how long the group will lack each gamer. If any of those gamers evaluated favorable for COVID-19, they will need to miss out on a minimum of 10 days unless they kip down 2 unfavorable COVID-19 tests within a 24-hour window.
