Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James is out for the next game with an injury. Long-term colonization is also a concern.
Local media such as ‘ESPN’ cited the injured list released by the Lakers team on the 28th (hereinafter Korean time) and reported that Lebron would miss the away game against the Memphis Grizzlies, which will be held the day after.
The reason for the absence is pain in the right foot. On the 27th, he was injured during an away game against the Dallas Mavericks.
He was injured while trying to break through in the third quarter. Lebron said in an on-court interview after the game that he seemed to have been injured by stepping on an opponent’s foot, but replays revealed that there was no contact.
LeBron was caught on the broadcast screen saying “something bounced” shortly after his fall.
Nonetheless, he played through to the end. He led the team to a come-from-behind victory by driving 11 points in the fourth quarter alone. After the game, he was seen leaving the field with a limp.
‘The Athletic’ NBA reporter Shames Charania, citing sources, said there are concerns that LeBron’s injury could be prolonged. ESPN said LeBron could be out for several weeks. 슬롯사이트
Previously, Lebron was playing with a left ankle injury. Right before the All-Star break, he rested three games in a row. And this time he met another injury bad news.
His injury is a huge blow for the team. The Lakers are currently 29-32 and are in 12th place in the Western Conference. It is one game away from 10th place, which can advance to the seeding match, and 2.5 games away from 6th place, which goes directly to the playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Lakers announced that guard D’Angelo Russell was also strongly questioned. Russell missed the last game against Dallas with a right ankle injury.
