LeBron James Injury: LA Lakers star LeBron James, who has been sidelined for over a month with a high-ankle sprain, may return to the court next week.
Anthony Davis also came after injury on a minutes restriction to play the 1st game of a 2-game miniseries between the Lakers and the Mavericks.
“You’ll see Anthony Davis still be on that 15-minute restriction in his second game back tonight, but that’ll start ramping up as we get closer to LeBron James’ return, which could be as soon as the following week,” Adrian Wojnarowski said.
Next week, the LA Lakers will stay on the road for matchups against the Orlando Magic and Washington Wizards before returning home for a three-game swing from Friday through Monday, May 3, against the Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors, and Denver Nuggets.
