LeBron James’ hiatus is lengthening.
Local media such as ‘AP’ cited the announcement of the Los Angeles Lakers team on the 3rd (hereinafter referred to as Korean time) and updated LeBron’s injury status.
The Lakers team did not specify the status of LeBron’s injury, instead saying it was “a tendon problem in his right foot.” He then said that in three weeks he plans to have a re-examination to see his condition.
This means that you will be out for at least 3 weeks. Return after three weeks is not guaranteed. In fact, most of March was missed.
The Associated Press reported that it would be the third season in Lebron’s 20-year career to miss 10 or more games in a row unless the injury situation improves rapidly.
Lebron missed 20 consecutive games in 2020-21 with an ankle injury and 17 consecutive games in 2018-19 with a groin injury.
The Lakers have an urgent way to go. 메이저사이트 They are currently in 11th place in the Western Conference with a record of 30 wins and 33 losses. At the end of the season, they won’t be able to make it to the playoffs.
It is one game away from the New Orleans Pelicans, who advance to the 7th and 8th seed match, and 2.5 games away from 6th place, which can go directly to the playoffs. It’s still too early to give up.
Under these circumstances, Lebron’s missing at least half of his remaining schedule is a huge blow.
The Lakers are 24-23 this season in games with LeBron, but only 6-10 in games without him.
The comforting thing is that the rest of the schedule is not that difficult. 12 out of 19 games were against teams with less than a .500 win rate.
Starting with the game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on the 4th, the Lakers are scheduled to play 5 home games against Golden State (6th), Memphis (8th), Toronto (11th) and New York (13th).
