It has now been almost a month since we last saw LeBron James in action for the Los Angeles Lakers. Unfortunately, recent reports indicate that the NBA’s all-time leading scorer is not about to return. Either way, LeBron is apparently doing everything he can to get back into shape as he looks to help LA fight for playoff positioning in the West.
Lakers head coach Darvin Ham recently provided an update on LeBron’s injury status, and although the first-year shooter was unable to provide a definitive timeline for the return of James, Los Angeles fans can take comfort in the fact that the four-time NBA champion is going in the right direction:
“Everything is fine according to planHam said of LeBron’s road to recovery, via beaten Lakers reporter Jovan Buha of The Athletic.
Ham also noted that James does no less than three training sessions a day, which have been described as “intense”. Coach Ham said these practices are “going well”, which seems to indicate that LeBron is indeed getting closer.
One thing you can say for sure about LeBron James is that he doesn’t take it lightly. He knows the Lakers need him ASAP as they try to secure their playoff spot, and for his part, the 19-time All-Star seems to be working like crazy to get back into shape.
At this point, the Lakers will just have to keep the ship afloat while they await the much-awaited return of their talisman.
