LeBron James returned to the court during Friday’s game against the Kings, but he was still feeling his injury.
King James put up 16 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists during his 32 minutes of play on Friday night. Following the game, he said that his ankle felt stiff.
Before James’ injury, he was averaging 25.4 point, 7.9 rebounds, and 7.9 assists. Missing the last 20 games has obviously done a number on his numbers.
The Lakers would go on to lose 110–106 against the Kings. Following the game, James was asked about his injury when he had a shocking admission.
“I don’t ever think I’ll ever get back to 100% in my career.”
We’ll have to see how LeBron James bounces back. He might have been hard on himself in the moment, but an injury at this stage in his career is also the last thing he needs.
