Lakers Injury Report
LeBron James unlikely to retire, but reportedly may need surgery that could ‘sideline him for two months’
It sounds like LeBron James should be ready for Lakers training camp in the fall, even if he does get surgery on the torn tendon in his foot.
Let’s take a closer look at the medical process that Lakers star LeBron James is about to go through with his foot.
LeBron James will get his torn foot tendon reevaluated now that the Lakers are done in the NBA playoffs.
In their first elimination game of the season, the Lakers will get the boost of the return of Mo Bamba, as he’s set to suit up after dealing with an ankle injury.
Despite going down with an ankle injury in the fourth quarter of Game 2, LeBron James said he’ll be ready and available in Game 3.
The Nuggets listed Jamal Murray as questionable for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, but he will play vs. the Lakers.
After exiting Game 5 against the Grizzlies with a head injury, Anthony Davis’ status for the Lakers in Game 6 will be the biggest story to monitor over the coming days.
The Lakers were dealt a big injury blow during the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s Game 5 as Anthony Davis was elbowed in the head, exited the game and did not return.
After battling through an injured hip to help the Lakers to a Game 4 win over the Grizzlies, Anthony Davis said he’d be "fine" as he continues to nurse the injury.
Dillon Brooks punched LeBron James in the nether regions less than a minute into the second half of Game 3, and was subsequently ejected from Lakers vs. Grizzlies.
Ja Morant injured his hand (and possibly wrist), while bracing for a fall in the fourth quarter of Lakers vs. Grizzlies Game 1, and will miss Game 2 of the series.
The first half injury scare for Anthony Davis in Sunday’s win for the Lakers turned out to be a relatively minor shoulder stinger.
LeBron James, Anthony Davis to have ‘zero restrictions’ for Lakers-Grizzlies series, Darvin Ham says
After nursing themselves to the finish line in the final weeks of the season, neither Anthony Davis nor LeBron James will have restrictions heading into the playoffs against the Grizzlies.
Dennis Schröder missed the last two games for the Lakers, but it looks like the team will have him available in the NBA play-in game vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Dennis Schröder was quickly downgraded to questionable, and then out, in the span of an hour before the Lakers took on the Suns on Friday, and could miss their Sunday matchup with the Jazz as well.
The Lakers were boosted by the return of D’Angelo Russell on Wednesday, but his left foot injury is one he’ll likely have to manage the rest of the season.
The Lakers Big Three of LeBron James, Anthony Davis and D’Angelo Russell are all question marks as to whether they’ll play in the team’s biggest game of the season against the Clippers on Wednesday.
After exiting Sunday’s game with an injury, D’Angelo Russell was downgraded from probable to questionable for Tuesday’s game for the Lakers against the Jazz with left foot soreness.
After a month with a sprained ankle, Mo Bamba’s return to the Lakers seems imminent and could be a boost for the team heading into the postseason.
The Lakers could welcome back D’Angelo Russell on Wednesday from his hip injury while LeBron James is questionable.
Out of nowhere, LeBron James will make his return for the Lakers on Sunday against the Chicago Bulls after missing three weeks with a foot tendon injury.
For the first time since he got hurt, the Lakers are not listing LeBron James as "out" on their injury report, and he is reportedly pushing to play vs. the Bulls.
The Lakers could be without starting point guard D’Angelo Russell again when they host the Bulls in Los Angeles on Sunday.
LeBron James was re-evaluated by the Lakers on Thursday and while the details remain vague, the consensus was good news as LeBron is still progressing forward.
The Lakers may welcome LeBron James back this season but he may not be 100% healthy when — and if — he does return this year.
The Lakers medical staff gave Anthony Davis a choice of which of the Lakers’ final two back-to-backs he wanted to play in both games of, and he chose their final one vs. the Jazz and Clippers.
In the most optimistic statement about LeBron James’ potential return yet, Darvin Ham said before Sunday’s game that the Lakers anticipate him to come back "at some point."
Dennis Schröder is once again providing medical updates on LeBron James, although this time he was at least slightly more cryptic about his Lakers teammate’s status.
The latest indications on LeBron James are that we should not expect to see him return from his foot tendon injury until close to the end of the regular season.
Even as he may be ahead of schedule in his recovery, the expectation is that LeBron James reportedly will still not return until the final week of the regular season.
