Even at the age of 38, we would not claim that LeBron James is prone to injuries since he has never been the type of player who is easily hurt. Nonetheless, it does appear to be somewhat less difficult to suffer an injury these days.
Although unfortunately for the Lakers, his most recent ankle injury occurred at a pivotal time in the season when they needed him the most.
The Los Angeles Lakers need to make it through the next two weeks without LeBron James as their starting point guard. Following foot surgery, the player who is currently the all-time scoring leader in NBA history will be sidelined for at least the next two weeks.
On the other hand, James was present for the game that the Lakers played against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night and made it a point to show his teammates that they had his complete support.
