LeBron James has been dealing with some injury issues as of late. Against the Dallas Mavericks a few weeks ago, James injured his foot. Overall, it was seen as a pretty bad injury considering he heard something pop. Subsequently, James was told that he would be reevaluated in just three weeks' time. This came at a bad time for the Lakers as they are trying to make the playoffs. They want to avoid the play-in, although that might not be possible now.
On social media, LeBron has been teasing a return to the game. That said, there is some skepticism in regard to this. The team has yet to make any statements on James, and reporters haven't exactly heard anything positive. Moreover, a new report from Briand Windhorst is showing how this could be a sobering situation for the Lakers. Essentially, Windhorst has been told that James is not close to returning. Furthermore, this is not an injury that you can really play through. Having said that, the Lakers may be without James in the playoffs, if they even get there.
LeBron Continues To Heal
"LeBron is not close to returning, from what I am told," Windhorst said. "I know that everybody said the three weeks but I think it was very clear three weeks is when he's going to get an official re-evaluation. It didn't mean he's coming back in three weeks. I know that LeBron has played through injuries in the past, I'm not 100 percent sure this is an injury you can play through." Overall, this is bad news for the Lakers. They need all the help they can get, although for now, they must get by with what they have.
If you are a Los Angeles Lakers fan, it is hard to not be discouraged right now. The team only has 12 games left, and they must win over half of them in order to ensure a play-in spot. Whether or not they can make that happen, hinges upon guys like Anthony Davis and D'Angelo Russell. Let us know what you think of all this, down below.
