the official injury report thread-update apr 15th 

Post#1 » by snaquille oatmeal » Thu Apr 1, 2021 5:26 pm

I hate to post this but life is tough in the NBA. we can post the latest updates on injuries to make it easier to find them. I'll start with the latest on Lebron, AD and AD2

Lebron:
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is expected to be sidelined between three to five more weeks after suffering a high right ankle sprain last week, according to an Athletic report.

“I really don’t have anything to add to where he’s at other than he’s out indefinitely,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said following shootaround in preparation for the team’s game on Thursday against Philadelphia. “We’re proceeding right now. My whole focus is the guys we have in uniform and the Philadelphia 76ers. We’re not really going to give updates as to where he’s at with the recovery.”

If that timeline bears out, James could return anywhere between April 16 to April 30. That would sideline James for an additional eight to 15 games. But the Lakers have nine regular-season games in May before the playoffs start on May 22.

AD:
Read on Twitter

Trudell further clarified that the advanced work includes increased volume and intensity in shooting, dribbling, and position-specific drills. The 28-year-old was spotted on Friday night working out before the team’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It’s quite clear that the Lakers are handling the situation with tremendous caution. The eight-time All-Star is working through an extremely sensitive area. LA wants to avoid additional issues with that part of his ankle, as it could see things head south quickly.

There isn’t yet a set timetable for Davis’ return, but he is at least progressing forward in his recovery process. The Lakers will continue to monitor the situation closely to see how his body responds to the recent increased workload.

So the Space Jam 2 official trailer came out... I wonder how much more time AD and LeBron are going to be out... Not to be a conspiracy theorist, or anything... But yeah...

Like I said in one of my previous posts... Post-production work takes time...

:lol:

As long as they all come back for around 10-15 games together before the playoffs to build some chemistry.

My theory is they're all hanging at LeBron and Ad's houses and playing on their personal courts...
Honestly, I wonder if that's the real reason LeBron was pushing so hard the beginning of the season... Because he knew he was going to have to take some time off...

I don't really care either, as long as they come back in time to play themselves into shape and unity.

Although, my confidence take a hit with each week they're both out... Especially AD... Big guys take longer to get their wind back and get flexible again...

Probably the least severe fracture you could have, but unfortunate nontheless. Did he mention any timetable? Can't imagine him sitting for that long.

Return to Los Angeles Lakers
