Dropped rocker arm ball into oil system.. help please

I was replacing injectors and on the #7 injector (back passenger side) as I removed the injector I must've bumped the rocker arm and it fell off and the ball it rocks on fell into the small oil valley on the bottom side of the head. I tried using a flexible magnet to remove it but I had no luck. I also don't really have any idea where the oil flows from the passage it fell into. I guess where do I go from here and what suggestions if any do you guys have? Thanks in advance.
