Luke Walton: No talks of moving Lonzo Ball out of starting 5

5:56 PM ET

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Coach Luke Walton says rookie Lonzo Ball remains the Los Angeles Lakers’ starting point guard and that there is no talk of moving the No. 2 overall draft pick to the bench.

Struggling with his shot, Ball has not played in the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ past two games — a win against the Phoenix Suns and a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Walton instead rode with the strong play of sixth man Jordan Clarkson.

“He’s our starting point guard,” Walton said of Ball after practice Thursday. “So there’s no discussion, no talks as of now of moving Lonzo to the bench. Nah. He’s our starting point guard.”

Joel Embiid posts celebratory Instagram with nods to Ball family

After a big night on the court, Joel Embiid made waves on social media when he posted an Instagram photo following his dominant performance vs. the Lakers that included subtle mentions of the Ball family.
