Injured in the right foot, LeBron James has not walked the NBA floors for a month.
Lakers superstar LeBron James will return to the NBA on Sunday against Chicago after a month-long hiatus with a right foot injury as the Los Angeles franchise seeks a playoff berth -offs.
James, who injured a tendon on February 26 in Dallas, was still uncertain on Sunday morning, but he will eventually be a substitute in this decisive meeting for the Lakers, which will be held in their hall.
With the regular season ending in two weeks, these final matches are indeed crucial for LA in the fight for the play-offs. Currently, the franchise is in eighth place in the Western Conference, qualifying for the play-offs (7-10), while only two victories separate seventh from twelfth.
Before his injury, “LBJ” averaged 29.5 points (50.1% shooting success), 8.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game. These statistics are exceptional for a 38-year-old player, who is playing his twentieth season in the North American basketball league.
It is only the second time in his career that James will be a substitute, after a meeting on December 11, 2007.
