LeBron James Injuries
LeBron James has been dealing with soreness in his left ankle. This is not a good news for the Los Angeles Lakers, who have been eliminated from playoff contention after Tuesday’s loss to Phoenix. The injury will likely require the star to sit out the remainder of the season, though he is expected to be ready for action next season. As of right now, he is questionable to play against the Mavericks.
LeBron James is out for the rest of the season
LeBron James will miss the rest of the season after suffering a sprained left ankle. The Los Angeles Lakers confirmed that their star will not play the rest of the season after having his ankle re-evaluated. LeBron is expected to make a full recovery. He played 56 games this season.
The injury is a serious setback for the Los Angeles Lakers. James has already missed two games last week with the ankle injury. His injury means that he will miss Sunday’s game against the Denver Nuggets. His absence will cost the Lakers their chance to qualify for the play-in games. The Lakers currently sit two games back of the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference. LeBron James’ team needs to win more games than the Spurs to qualify.
He’s averaging 29.1 points per game
At age 37, LeBron James is enjoying one of his best scoring seasons in his career. He is averaging 29.1 points per game, while also averaging 7.9 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. In addition, he is shooting 52.2% from the field, which puts him in third place in the NBA. Not to mention, his team is 27-31, which is a dismal record.
Although LeBron James has been plagued by injuries this season, his performance is still impressive. As of the current schedule, he is averaging 29.1 points per game, which would tie him for second in the league. He is also leading the league in assists per game, which would give him the second-highest total of all time. If he can keep up his current pace, he could break the record midway through the 2022-23 season. If he does, he would pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who holds 38387 career points.
He’s been dealing with soreness in his left ankle
LeBron James has been dealing with soreness in left ankle and is doubtful for game against Mavericks. Although James has been a near-superhuman injury healer, missing a game could have a negative impact on the Lakers’ play-in hopes. Here are some things to keep in mind as you watch James’ rehab process.
The NBA star said he started treatment on his ankle before leaving the arena and will continue the treatment “around the clock” before Tuesday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks. The flight from New Orleans to Dallas is likely to increase the severity of the ankle injury, so it’s best for James to be extra cautious.
He’s also questionable to play against the Mavericks
The Lakers are battling injury woes of their own. James has been sidelined by various knee and abdominal soreness this season. However, this latest injury to his ankle has him questionable to play against the Mavericks. He will need the summer to recover from this injury.
According to NBA.com’s injury report, both Davis and LeBron James will miss their next two games against the Mavericks because of injuries. James has been sidelined since Feb. 16 and is still questionable to play against the Mavericks. However, Davis did practice this week for the first time since his injury.
He’s expected to make a full recovery
The Lakers’ star has missed a few games this season due to a sprained ankle. The injury has been causing him a lot of pain and trouble, but he is expected to make a full recovery. James will likely need four to six weeks off to heal. Now that the Lakers are out of the playoffs, he will have plenty of time to rest and recover. At 37, LeBron is still the best player in the league.
The team’s front office is planning a number of changes in order to get the team back on track, but James will remain a key part of the future of the team. He has beaten back Father Time before, and there’s no reason to change that.
