At home Los Angeles Lakers is holding great concern in these hours over the physical condition of LeBron James. The King finished Sunday’s game against Dallas despite a right foot injury that immediately appeared to need at least attention. After the game, James had been seen leaving the arena with a noticeable limp, and in recent hours it was announced that he will not be available for tomorrow’s game against Memphis..
According to Shams Charania, however, the Lakers would be concerned that LeBron may need an extended period of time to recover. Therefore, this would not be a minor injury to recover from in a few days, but perhaps even take a few weeks. The yellow-viola were finding balance after the trade deadline and are now at 3 wins in a row, just one game behind 10th place, the last place valid for the Play-in. The absence of James, 29.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists average, will certainly weigh in.
James miraculously played through the injury that is now expected to require multiple opinions, sources said, and the Lakers are bracing for his absence to be multiple weeks. https://t.co/zuovQ2wVzc
