Hornets star LaMelo Ball injured in NBA preseason game against Wizards.

NC-CHARLOTTE Just as the Charlotte Hornets received a new face, their most entertaining player got hurt.

Anthony Gill trod on Ball's foot on a drive to the basket, sending him sprawling to the ground.

He sank both free throws, then hobbled back to the locker room with Joe Sharpe to be assessed.

Ball was hurt a little over a week before the big game.

Gordon Hayward warmed up an hour before tipoff, practising moves and shooting jumpers.

It wasn't how the Hornets wanted to end their preseason.
