The King is BACK!!!
LeBron James is slated to make his highly-anticipated return to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday … after missing more than a month due to injury.
Bron — who suffered a high ankle sprain against the Atlanta Hawks on March 20 — is expected to play in the Lake Show’s matchup against the Sacramento Kings as long as warmups go according to plan, Shams Charania reports.
The injury was tough on James — he was having an MVP-caliber season with 25 points and nearly 8 rebounds and 8 assists before going down with the injury.
The Lakers have certainly missed his presence … going 8-12 and falling to 5th in the Western Conference during his time away from the court.
Of course, Anthony Davis also missed several games this season with a calf strain and Achilles tendinosis … so the Purple & Gold have got to be excited to have the gang back together.
There are 10 games left in the regular season … which is just enough time for the defending champs to get back to winning ways as the postseason approaches.
