LeBron James has missed the Los Angeles Lakers since March 20 due to an ankle injury. After the current champ slipped something on the table, the 36-year-old issued a warning via Instagram.
Without James and fellow superhero Anthony Davis, who has been absent since mid-February due to Achilles tendon problems, the Lakers have recently suffered a few defeats and are currently only fifth in the Western Conference with number 32-19. Portland and Dallas could also overtake California under certain conditions.
Davis now appears to be on the verge of making a comeback soon, as James originally mentioned a “four to six weeks” rest period, meaning a comeback between April 17 and April 31. There is no more accurate schedule for both stars, as coach Frank Vogel confirmed Thursday.
“There is progress every day in both. But there is no update to the schedule,” said Vogel, ahead of the final rematch against the Miami Heat. James himself, in turn, called via Instagram With a vague message to speak.
James wrote of a picture of himself with Davis: “A weather expert announces an imminent change in weather and predicts a storm.” “Men, be prepared and take the necessary safety precautions.”
In two years together, the two stars have won 62 of the 84 games in the regular season so far. At the start of this season, the Lakers seemed to be fighting before injuries spread. The last time they were on the field together was on February 14, when Los Angeles was 7-21.
When they both return, the title defense mission must start all over again. As announced by the team, the championship banner will be unveiled at Staples Center on May 12th, before the qualifiers begin. It only happens very late, because then the fans can be in the hall.
