LeBron James has been out with an abdominal strain. The team has experienced some bumps in the road without him, but it’s always better to have one of the greatest players of all time in your lineup. We now know that LeBron should be ready to return to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, November 19.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted the news yesterday morning. King James could be ready to go against the Boston Celtics on Friday night. After that, the Lakers go on a five-game road trip starting in Milwaukee the following Wednesday.

“There’s growing optimism that LeBron James could make his return to the Lakers vs. Boston on Friday (ESPN, 7:30 PM), sources tell ESPN. James has been out two weeks with an abdominal strain. Lakers start five-game road trip in Milwaukee on Wednesday.”

The Lakers got roughed up by the Chicago Bulls most recently. The game was met with controversy. Anthony Davis was ejected from the game. LeBron was roasted by fans for leaving early.

LeBron returning to the lineup could be just the cure for what’s ailing the Lakers. His two-week absence due to the injury has contributed greatly to their substandard 8-7 record. The team desperately needs a shot in the arm.

LeBron James recently found out he might be getting his own hockey team. Currently under the ownership of Mario Lemieux and billionaire Ron Burkle, the Pittsburgh Penguins are looking to sell the team to Fenway Sports Group LLC. James is a member of the Fenway organization.
