R.J. Hampton has been medically cleared for full contact in the Australian NBL, while LaMelo Ball remains out for the indefinite future, sources told ESPN.

Hampton, No. 7 in ESPN's top 100 draft prospects for 2020, has been cleared by doctors to resume full basketball activity after recovering from a hip injury and was a partial participant in two practices this week, sources told ESPN.

He has been sidelined since early December but will travel with the New Zealand Breakers on a road trip to play the South East Melbourne Phoenix and Cairns Taipans this weekend, although it's currently unlikely he plays in Melbourne.
