After missing two straight games with an ankle injury, LeBron James returned to the Lakers’ lineup on Friday against the Pelicans.
His return was a huge boost to the Lakers, who are fighting to clinch a spot in the NBA Play-In Tournament. The Lakers are 11th in the Western Conference with a record of 31-46, a game behind the Spurs. Unfortunately for the Lakers, the Spurs have the tiebreaker.
The Lakers have gone 2-8 in their last 10 games and are currently on a five-game losing streak.
Despite the Lakers’ woes, James has been absolutely amazing this season. The 37-year-old superstar is averaging 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game.
