In other news… A #ShamsBomb sent some ripples across the Top Shot market:
Hornets say LaMelo Ball's fractured right wrist has healed and he has been cleared to return to individual basketball activity.
After what looked like a season-ending injury (and an end to Ball’s potential Rookie of the Year campaign), his early return puts him right back into the conversation for the award. With many speculating that Rookie of the Year badges will eventually come to the platform, the news led to a surge of transactions on his three moments.
LaMelo Ball bag holders re-entering the chat:
P.S. — Don’t forget who the Cool Cats Master Challenge reward is… 👀
