The return of LeBron James from injury seems to be on the horizon. After a few more games, the NBA’s best player might suit up for the Los Angeles Lakers.
According to the Orange County Register, James could play as soon as next week. The 36-year-old has been on the mend after suffering a high ankle sprain on March 20.
Given the Lakers’ cautious approach to their best player, James is more likely to return in one of the team’s next two games. On May 6 and 7, the Lakers face the Los Angeles Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers in back-to-back games.
