EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Lonzo Ball will return to the court and play alongside LeBron James for the first time this preseason on Wednesday night against Golden State.

Ball, who has been eased back into action after undergoing surgery for a torn left meniscus, said he will come off the bench.

Ball could play between 10 to 30 minutes when the Lakers and Warriors meet in Las Vegas, according to coach Luke Walton. If all goes well, Ball expects to play again in the Lakers’ preseason finale, also against Golden State, in San Jose on Friday.

Fellow second-year guard Josh Hart, who tweaked a hamstring in practice on Monday, is listed as questionable to play Wednesday.

“Feels like a long time,” Ball said before the Lakers left for Las Vegas on Tuesday. “So I am very happy to get back on the floor finally, and it all starts with tomorrow.

Ball has not played in a basketball game since March 28 against Dallas. He missed the final
