LeBron James worries Laker Nation about injuries
The 37-year-old veteran forward fell to the ground immediately, urging the Lakers to call time out to have him checked out. James relaced his shoe and was able to get up, but it was clear his ankle was in pain as he tested it on the bench.
Check out how the fans reacted to it.
Luckily, Lakers fans were able to breathe easy after LeBron James stayed in the game after the time-out. Although he seemed troubled at first, he was able to shake it off. It was definitely a stroke of luck for the Los Angeles Lakers as such events could have led to a more serious ankle injury for LeBron James.
That being said, it’s good that it’s not too tough and the superstar forward was able to play through it. Given that Anthony Davis is set to return, with the postseason approach. If the Lakers are to get through the regular season, they need LeBron James in all of their remaining encounters.
