But according to American media reports, LeBron was not lightly injured. At that time, the Lakers gave no diagnosis of muscle tear and structural damage, but according to ESPN veteran journalist McMenamen, LeBron would have to rest for a few more weeks if he wanted to be conservative and return to 100% health.
If the Lakers really need him to rush back to the rescue, LeBron can not advance the date, but that means the risk of repeated injuries.
In eight games without LeBron, the Lakers scored a 3-5 record, and their condition was shaky. Originally they were in the top four of the West, but now they have fallen back into the lower half of the West, and their playoff seats are also in jeopardy.
If LeBron really wants to rest for a few more weeks, the question is whether the Lakers have any hope of playing in the playoffs. This period is undoubtedly a tough challenge for manager Walton and the young players in the team.
