Lonzo Ball’s younger brother, LiAngelo Ball, won’t be returning to the UCLA Bruins following his indefinite suspension due to an international shoplifting case in early November.

LiAngelo’s father, LaVar, is “removing him from the institution” because he “believes the suspension was unfair, especially since the charges were dropped,” according to the report by TMZ Sports. ESPN also had the initial quotes coming out of the Big Baller camp:

While LiAngelo hasn’t been officially withdrawn from the school, he’s currently at his home in Chino Hills and isn’t planning on returning to the campus, according to the same report.

LiAngelo hasn’t been allowed to travel with the team since his suspension and has missed eight of the Bruins’ games. Should LiAngelo attempt continue his basketball career, he could request a transfer, try his hand at the NBA G-League or consider going overseas.
