Lonzo Ball's recovery from a sprained MCL in his left knee will delay his return to the Los Angeles Lakers-and, really, NBA basketball of any sort-until after the All-Star break.

Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox will replace injured Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball on the U.S. Team in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles, the National Basketball Association announced Wednesday.

Therefore, Ball's college foe, Fox, will get the nod in Friday night's game.

The NBA announced on Wednesday that Fox has been selected to play for the USA team during Friday night's 2018 Mountain Dew Kickstart Rising Stars game at All-Star Weekend. Although the former UCLA standout recently said he "feels good enough to play", he won't be participating in this season's All-Star festivities.

The two top-five picks have also divvied up their two National Basketball Association meetings to date, with Ball averaging 8.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 11.0 assists and 3.0 steals, and Fox contributing 14.0 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.5 steals to the Kings' cause therein.

Fox was already listed as a reserve for the Rising Stars event, so it should come as no surprise that he was chosen as a replacement.

The Lakers have second-year forward Brandon Ingram and rookie forward Kyle Kuzma playing for the U.S. Team. Additionally, Team World includes Bogdan Bogdanovic of the Kings, Dillon Brooks of the Grizzlies, Buddy Heild of the Kings Lauri Markkanen of the Bulls, Jamal Murray of the Nuggets, Frank Nitlikina of the Knicks and Domantas Sabonis of the Pacers.
