On the sidelines for a while, LeBron James should make his comeback very soon. Unless a new detail comes to complicate things … The latest report on injuries to the Lakers is indeed cause for concern, on the side of the fans.
8 wins for 9 losses, including four in the last five meetings: the Lakers are at their lowest for the moment, with a pitiful 9th place in the Western Conference. Frank Vogel’s men haven’t been doing well since the start of the competition, partly also because of a constantly full infirmary. Among his residents, and not the least: Lebron james, still absent due to his abdominal injury. You miss only one being …
The King far from the prosecution, the Crimson and Gold have fallen back into their faults of last year, developing a rather catastrophic game. As a result, the announcement of a rapid return of n ° 6 seemed like a godsend to the franchise and its fans.

Will he stay on the bench against the Michigan franchise, so that he is fully in shape to play the back-to-back that will be held against the Knicks and Pacers? Or will he be dressed on Sunday evening, before being put to rest? A rather difficult puzzle to solve for the coaching staff of the franchise.
