However, recent developments suggest that the Lakers star is looking forward to returning to the court in no time.

When can LeBron James be back on the court?

In the pregame press conference on Sunday, Lakers coach Darvin Ham assured the fans, “We anticipate him coming back at some point this season,” but there was no possible timeline he could provide at that moment.

Later during the game against the Orlando Magic at Crypto.com Arena, the 38-year-old was seen assuring a staff of his comeback by saying, “Playoffs, for sure.” ESPN’s analyst Dave McMenamin overheard the conversation and revealed information.
