LeBron James’ Unfortunate Recovery Time Update

LeBron James’ Unfortunate Recovery Time Update

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James suffered a high ankle sprain during a recent showdown against the Atlanta Hawks.

The injury itself led to a lot of blame being thrown around.

Outside of who was responsible for what happened, the other popular topic of conversation in the aftermath was how long James would be out.

After all, the Lakers had just gotten bad news regarding Anthony Davis’ recovery time, and now their lone standing star was down.

This week, a clearer picture emerged of how long James would be out.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, James’ injury was set to keep him out 4 to 6 weeks.

Given that one week has already passed, that means James will be eligible to return in 3 to 5 weeks.

Prior to going down with the injury, James was averaging 25.4 points, 7.9 assists and 7.9 rebounds per game.

Currently the Lakers are 28-17 – good for fourth in the West.

The team was rumored to be a contender for some big names in the lead-up to this week’s trade deadline, but ultimately didn’t pull the trigger.

Fortunately, they’re in the market to acquire at least one star via the buyout market.

Whether or not they’ll actually be able to do so remains to be seen.
