The Los Angeles Lakers keep losing games and fans can’t wait for the return of the main character. LeBron James has been out since March 20 and he may not return on time for the playoffs. Well, this is not an official statement as the team has yet to make a decision. Lakers head coach Frank Vogel provided an update on the four-time NBA champion and it’s not that good.
Some fans will be really disappointed as everyone was looking forward to LeBron’s return.
Vogel didn’t reveal if LeBron will join the Lakers before the postseason. His comment wasn’t really precise. If you still wonder whether LeBron will join the starting lineup before the postseason, here’s a shocker. He is still out indefinitely. That’s what Vogel said when asked about the king’s return.
LeBron James may not return for the playoffs
The four-time NBA champion sustained a high-ankle injury in the game against the Atlanta Hawks. He hasn’t seen any action on the floor. But he does share hype videos to keep everyone updated. Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless don’t really like that. LeBron shared a video of himself applying pressure to his ankle. It’s a great development and the king of basketball should be ready for game action.
Vogel’s update blew up our hopes. We really wanted to see LeBron back by the end of this week. It looks like the franchise is really careful with his return. They have decided to play the safe game. LeBron can’t re-aggravate his injury. That would destroy every hopes LA fans have to see their favorite team in the playoffs.
Anthony Davis joined the lineup but the team still has some issues to solve. Things look really hard with LeBron on the sidelines.
LA players plan to win back-to-back NBA titles. Maybe they should keep LeBron at full strength for the postseason. Rushing him back into game action won’t be that wise.
The Lakers fell to the No.5 seed in the West. LeBron is averaging 25.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 7.9 assists per game. We need those numbers back on the board.
