LeBron James’ true feelings on injury recovery after watching Lakers escape Jazz
There’s nothing LeBron James wants more right now than to get back on the court. Who can blame him? It feels like an eternity since fans last saw The King don the Purple and Gold alongside his Los Angeles Lakers teammates.
While he was thrilled to see his guys get the job done, it’s clear that the four-time NBA MVP is itching to return. LeBron admitted he’s “impatiently patiently waiting” on his Instagram stories shortly after the match.
For sure, Lakers fans feel the same energy as LeBron James. He has practically been Iron Man throughout his illustrious 18-year career, so seeing him in street clothes doesn’t seem right. James was indeed looking like an impatient spectator, as he was seen rehabbing his bothersome ankle while on the bench.

The 36-year-old superstar has been out for over three weeks now due to that high-grade ankle sprain. The early diagnosis had him on the mend for four to six weeks. Obviously, the Lakers are not rushing his return despite their slide in the standings at fifth in the West (35-22).
The Lakers, meanwhile, are expected to get Anthony Davis back in the coming days, and it seems LeBron’s return is also not far behind. The signing of Andre Drummond has infused new life for the reigning champs’ title defense this season. Both fans and pundits are curious to see how he’ll fare playing alongside the two LA superstars.
