Is LeBron James playing in the 2023 All-Star game?


Is LeBron James playing in the 2023 NBA All-Star game?

LeBron James is widely regarded as one of the best players to ever step on a basketball court. It was only last week when the Los Angeles Lakers star became the NBA’s all-time record scorer as he went past the scoring record of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and cemented his argument to feature in conversations for the greatest basketball player of all time.

However, while the legendary veteran enjoyed an incredible night in Los Angeles where he steered clear of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the all-time scoring record after the latter held it for nearly four decades – LeBron James could not finish the game. It was revealed that a nagging foot issue made James unable to finish the game, but he is yet to make his return to the court.

Since the loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at home, the Lakers have gone up against the Milwaukee Bucks as well as the Golden State Warriors without the services of their veteran talisman. The latest Lakers’ injury report included James in a questionable status, listing “left ankle soreness” as his problem – which continues to keep him out of on-court action.

And as it seems, the upcoming NBA All-Star weekend may come too soon for King James to play a part.

Will LeBron James feature in the All-Star game?

As it turns out, James may not end up featuring in the much-awaited All-Star game taking place this weekend in Utah.

The 38 year old James, who is set to equal Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in first place in the all-time list for most All-Star appearances with his 19th appearance is currently a questionable feature at the All-Star weekend. According to NBA insider Chris B Haynes of ESPN, LeBron’s injury currently makes him a doubt for the NBA All-Star set to take place this weekend.

LeBron – who has racked up 18 consecutive appearances at the All-Star game – remains a huge doubt for the weekend, and may not lead his team out against Giannis Antetokounmpo’s when the two teams meet in the All-Star game at the Vivint Arena in Utah this weekend.
