  Report: Hornets forward Miles Bridges expected to miss 10-14 days due to coronavirus protocols LaMelo Ball returned to the Hornets and quickly showed his chemistry with Miles Bridges.But now Bridges is out due to the NBA’s coronavirus protocols.

A few more passes like that and LaMelo Ball might have gone in the first round of the NFL draft.

The day after LaMelo threw an underhand length-of-the-court pass for an assist, he beat the buzzer against Miami with a more traditional touchdown pass to Terry Rozier for a bucket.

LaMelo just has “it” — you can’t take your eyes off him. Two games back from a fractured wrist and he is making highlight play after highlight play. The pass wasn’t his only one in this game.

More than just highlights, he’s impacted winning in Charlotte, too, helping them into a playoff position. However, he was not helping the Hornets win against the Heat on Sunday as Miami led by more than 20 in the fourth.

NBA Power Rankings: Joel Embiid powers 76ers into top spot .
The red-hot Clippers remain in second, followed by the Jazz and Suns. 1. 76ers (39-18 Last Week No. 4). Beating the shorthanded Nets put Philadelphia in the driver’s seat for the No. 1 seed in the East, then a win over the Clippers (also shorthanded, although so were the 76ers) cemented their contender status and put Philly atop these rankings (we’re not holding the loss to the tornado that is Stephen Curry against them).
