While the Lakers took a good victory on Sunday, we also had the right to some information regarding the return of LeBron James on the floor. For the moment, we have to believe that the fans will have to continue to be patient.
This resumption of the season is clearly not the one hoped for for the Lakers, who wanted to start strong with a new Big 3. Unfortunately for them, the acclimatization of Russell Westbrook is complicated, while injuries are rife. LeBron James is no exception, being in the hospital wing until further notice.
Are the fans worried? Maybe a little, especially since the King was initially to miss a week of competition. The problem is, in a few days we will already hit the two week mark. What to ask questions for the future? Possible, especially since Frank Vogel has cast doubt on the King’s upcoming participation.
LeBron James is coming back soon?
What we know is that the return of the Akron native should be soon. Information recently confirmed by Dave McMenamin, who went to question his sources:
“Soon,” a source close to LeBron was able to tell ESPN about his return. She also explains that James is progressing well on the floor during training.
Good, but not enough for the Angelinos, who absolutely want to avoid a relapse. A logical tactic, especially since the franchise won its last game with a change of position for Anthony Davis. So it wouldn’t be surprising for the staff to play time for LeBron again, especially if the victories follow one another.
Vogel, in front of the journalists, was in any case reassuring about his player, even if the mystery remains about his return:
He seems in good shape, he moves well. He hasn’t been able to complete a workout yet but looks ready for his individual workout.
Best for LeBron James, but it’s not enough to get him back on the court. We play it safe with the Angelinos, who do not want to aggravate the injury of the star. Logical, especially at this stage of the season.
