LeBron James may return to the court tonight after suffering ankle injury
James has been out since March 20 after suffering a high ankle sprain amid a matchup with the Atlanta Hawks.
After suffering an ankle injury in March, LeBron James may be making his return to basketball really soon. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers star is considering playing in Friday night’s (April 30) game against the Sacramento Kings.
James had been listed as “out” for Friday’s matchup, but he’s been upgraded to “questionable.” He will test his ankle and make a decision ahead of the game.
As REVOLT previously reported, the NBA star endured a high ankle sprain on March 20 while playing against the Atlanta Hawks. James was attempting to help the team catch up as they trailed five points behind the Hawks, but he lost control of the ball.
As Hawks guard Solomon Hill went for the loose ball, he toppled over into James’ right ankle. The Lakers player grimaced in pain but eventually got up and scored a three pointer from the corner. He subsequently called timeout and made his way to the locker room alongside the Lakers’ trainers. He never made it back to the game.
After the matchup that saw the Lakers lose by four points to the Hawks, James expressed his feelings regarding the injury and his inability to lead his team on the court. “Nothing angers and saddens me more than not being available to and for my teammates!” he wrote. “I’m hurt inside and out right now. The road back from recovery begins now. Back soon like I never left.”
James was ruled out indefinitely after suffering his high ankle sprain — an injury that has resulted in the longest absence from his career. With the Lakers’ loss in four of the five past games and their fifth standing in the Western Conference, the NBA star is reportedly ready to make his return.
If James sits out on Friday’s game (April 30), he will likely play on Sunday (May 2) against the Toronto Raptors, according to sources.
