LeBron James has had an injury-riddled season for the Los Angeles Lakers so far this season, but when is he expected to make his return to action?
The Los Angeles Lakers are still missing LeBron James as he tries to return from his injury setback ahead of their clash against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday.
The Lakers’ talisman LeBron James has had a season riddled with injuries. The four-time champion and four-time Most Valuable Player of the season has not had the best of seasons, partly because of his disastrous shooting form and his injuries. In the 20th NBA season of his career, James seems to be finally feeling the effects of his body catching up with him.
The NBA legend has missed the last five games for the Lakers with a strain in his left adductor muscle, but for Lakers’ fans struggling to see the positives in this situation – there is a silver lining to his situation as an expected date of return seems to be close.
When is LeBron James expected to make his return for the Los Angeles Lakers?
It is expected that James will be back in the team as the Lakers travel to San Antonio to face the Spurs on Thursday night.
The NBA legend seems to near his way back into the lineup after Chris Haynes reported during the Lakers’ last game against the Phoenix Suns that LeBron will make his way back into the lineup when the Lakers travel to San Antonio to face the Spurs. LeBron James will make his first appearance in six games, and – the Lakers have not done too badly without him.
The Lakers have certainly held their own without James. They are 3-2 in that stretch after opening the season with a 2-9 record. Anthony Davis has picked up the slack in that stretch, averaging 32.6 points and 17.4 rebounds per game since James has been out. However, even with Davis on the song, the Lakers need a fit LeBron to help them back into the Playoffs picture.
