After LeBron James’ most recent injury, the Los Angeles Lakers chances of making the playoffs are dim. The four-time MVP will be out for an extended period of time due to a foot issue, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.
It is unclear when James will return to the court; he is anticipated to remain out for an extended period of time. LeBron even shared a video of his foot ailment, which may indicate that his recovery may take some time.
LeBron James’ agent Rich Paul, according to Skip Bayless, is delivering conflicting information about the player’s right foot issue. The “Undisputed” anchor and co-host Shannon Sharpe got into a heated argument on Tuesday while talking about the specifics of James’ ailment and rumors that the Lakers star may miss many weeks due to the injury.
LeBron James was heard stating, “I heard it pop,” after he came down on his right foot while trying a layup in the third quarter, which prompted Bayless to voice his initial displeasure with James continuing to play in Sunday’s ultimate victory against the Mavericks.
Bayless asked: “What exactly is his injury, Mr. Sharpe? You’re close, you’re in the inner circle. I need to know what the injury is. They won’t even say what the injury is. It’s another mysterious LeBron injury”. In order to be transparent, Bayless stated, teams should completely report any injuries to athletes, especially when a talent like James serves as the public face of the organization.
