LeBron James aims royal Lakers comeback as he doing “everything he can” to return for playoff push

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar Lebron James went out for several games due to an ankle injury during their clash with the Dallas Mavericks on February 26 at American Airlines Center.

Since then, the Lakers star seems to have developed a tendon injury caused by a sprained ankle, with which he played through a handful of games prior to the Mavericks. Even after the game, he was seen limping out of the facility and posted a bandaged photo of his ankle later on Instagram.

From the early phase of the regular season, the 38-year-old has played in his prime time form, and the pressure exponentially increased after the Lakers caught up with an injury bug. Stars like Anthony Davis, Austin Reaves, and Russell Westbrook didn’t make regular appearances on the court.

However, despite picking up the injury himself, LeBron is waiting to make a comeback as soon as possible, as the Lakers are cruising their way to the postseason.

What is LeBron James doing to return to the court?

Consequently, the franchise suffered even though the 19-time all-star gave top-notch performances game after game. However, in his age, that much pressure happens to take a toll on the body, and LeBron finally started feeling physically uncomfortable at the start of this year.

After his recent injury, King James was set to miss roughly a month of game time, but he is determined to make a comeback amid the Lakers’ fiery form in recent games.

On ESPN’s ‘Get Up,’ Brian Windhorst revealed a piece of relieving information for the fans, saying, “They still have a window to do something special this season, and they sense it. You can tell by the way AD is playing, and you can tell by the way LeBron is trying everything he can to get back, that they sense there’s still opportunity.”

That’s the icing on the cake, like good news for the Lakers fans, as the team really needs a final push to qualify for the postseason, which James himself promised a month ago.

However, saying that, we also want him to get a healthy recovery rather than a quick one, as this type of injury appears to have bugged him for quite a lot of time. It could recur, and in the crucial part of the season, the fans wouldn’t appreciate that at all.

What’s your feeling about LeBron James’ eagerness to return to the games? Do you want him to take his time rather than make a hasty decision? Let us know your opinion in the comments.
