LeBron James’s contributions to the world of professional basketball cannot be understated. James suffered a serious injury to his right ankle in the Lakers’ game against the Atlanta Hawks back in March. Even after coming back, James has never been the same. It seems James’ streak of bad luck isn’t over just yet.
During the Lakes game against the Memphis Grizzlies last week, LeBron James hurt his ankle again. This happened after Dwight Howard and LeBron James took a tumble while preventing a shot. James landed hard on his ankle and had trouble getting back up.
It was said that James was concerned about re-injuring his ankle. Due to this LeBron James had to miss out on the next two games. To add to his woes, LeBron James will miss out on another week of action due to abdominal strain.
Ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Thunders, Lakers coach Frank Vogel took to Twitter and provided an update on LeBron James’ condition. He stated that James’ injury is concerning. Frank also said that LeBron felt something pulling in the final quarter against the Rockets earlier this week.
“Hopefully he’ll be back soon… He doesn’t know exactly what happened… He felt something pulling (in the fourth quarter),”
We certainly hope LeBron James will not have to miss out on too much crucial game time. The Lakers are already 5-4 this season, which is certainly not what they were hoping for at all. We will keep you updated on this ongoing story.
