Depends on which league you play in, but NBA you only have to wait for the ball to leave the shooters hands

I believe that rule is the same in high school (when it leaves the hand), but there are definitely youth leagues where you have to wait until the ball hits the rim.

In high school and other advanced-level leagues, players can enter the lane as soon as the ball leaves the shooter's hand.

In high school the ball must have contact with the rim

Richard is correct: High school players cannot enter the lane until the ball hits the rim. Good catch.
