The Lakers were severely beaten last night against the Bulls, still deprived of LeBron James, hit in the abdominals. His return has been announced close for a few days, but it is still not known exactly when he will return. He missed 7 games in a row and Frank Vogel said the decision to come back was up to him.
“We trust him to manage his own progress for his return to the game,” said Frank Vogel. “So it will be between Mike Mancias, LeBron and the rest of the medical team. And, of course, as coaches, we will be watching how this job turns out. But we trust them to make smart decisions about it. ”
The Lakers’ next game is tomorrow night in Milwaukee, the first of a five-game away streak, which means the Lakers aren’t going to practice a lot.
Without him the Lakers have lost 4 of their last 7 meetings
