Lonzo Ball will have an MRI on his knee, but he’s not worried about it.

After exiting the game with a left knee contusion on Wednesday, Lonzo Ball will get a “precautionary” MRI on his left knee, according to Lakers sideline reporter Mike Trudell.

Ball missed 15 games at the beginning of the year with a left knee injury that was later diagnosed as an MCL sprain. However, Ball said he was not hit in the same area and doesn’t expect he’ll miss too much time, if any at all.

Ball left the game with 8 points, 4 rebounds and a team-high 5 assists. Despite not having Ball in crunch time, the Lakers walked away with a 103-93 win on Wednesday.

The Lakers will take on the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday at home. We’ll find out early Thursday morning whether or not Ball will be available for the contest.
