All-time scoring leader LeBron James has been a spectator since suffering a foot injury. The Lakers forward hurt his foot in the third quarter of the team’s game against the Dallas Mavericks on February 26.
Chris Haynes of Turner Sports reported that the right tendon injury would not require surgery and that James’ return was contingent on where the Lakers were in the standings at the three-week evaluation mark.
Thursday afternoon The Athletic and. Stadium’s Shams Charania reported that James had begun on-court activites but a timetable for his return did not yet exist.
Haynes also added that LeBron does hope to be back on the court for the Lakers final games of the regular season.
James has missed the team’s last 13 games with the foot injury and has missed 25 games for a variety of reasons this season. In the 47 games LeBron has appeared in he has averaged 29.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists.
