The Lakers made a very urgent comeback last night. They tried to start working in the right direction as they have to make up for the 8 consecutive losses they faced prior to this match. While they emerged victorious against the Grizzlies in a close match with the score of 121-118, their star player ended up incurring an injury.
LeBron James experienced another injury, and his involvement in the upcoming games is in question. While James’ performance was great, Carmelo Anthony carried the game home with his exceptional performance.
The Lakers will face the Spurs next. Even though the Spurs are going through their own 2-game losing streak, James’ is listed as “probable.” The listing details that he has right ankle soreness, which is the same spot that kept him off the field for a long time last year.
James missed a whopping 27 games last year because of right ankle complications. This kept the Lakers’ performance on a low as well. While James starts his recovery from the injury this early in the season, The Lakers might go through the same problems they did during his initial injuries.
LeBron James is the least of their worries, however, since they already have some key players out. Trevor Ariza, Wayne Ellington, Kendrick Nunn, and Talen Horton-Tucker all have their injuries to deal with, so this season might prove difficult for the Lakers as well.
