Best Answer

What happens is the ball deforms which then flattens then returns to its normal shape which then makes it bounce.

As for what happens rules-wise when the ball hits the ground, not a lot. The ball is on the ground for a fair portion of the game, which can lead to heavy contact when players vie for control of the ball.
