Andrew Luck is throwing, but his surgically repaired shoulder is not quite 100 percent.
The Colts placed their Pro Bowl quarterback on the physically unable to perform list on Monday, but Luck is still expected to be the team’s Week 1 starter.
Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Monday Luck is in the midst of the throwing part of his shoulder rehab. Luck can come off the PUP list at any point during the preseason and is on track to start under center when the Colts begin the regular season on Sept. 10 against the Rams.
Peep how long the line is outside the gym for tonight’s LaMelo Ball vs Zion Williamson face-off in Las Vegas.
Tournament officials were given the official OK to play the game only moments before the scheduled tipoff, as fans, some of whom had waited hours, stood six and seven deep to see Williamson’s SC Supreme defeat the LaVar Ball-coached Big Baller team, 104-92.
“Unreal. Never seen anything like it,” Kansas coach Bill Self, who was on hand for the game, told ESPN.
In addition to Self, NBA players Damian Lillard, Thon Maker, Jamal Murray, Andrew Wiggins and Lonzo Ball, LaMelo’s oldest brother, were in attendance.
LeBron James reportedly had planned to watch the showdown from courtside, but — according to ESPN, which cited an unidentified source — he didn’t get out of his vehicle after he arrived and talked with people connected to the tournament. He opted to avoid the situation, citing “security concerns,” ESPN’s source said.
“They oversold this,” a law enforcement official told ESPN.com. “Way oversold.”
