James went straight back to the locker room, frustratedly hitting a chair as he walked through the Staples Center tunnel. He didn’t come back, and the Lakers lost with a final score of 99-94, a four-game winning streak.

How long will LeBron James be away?
Short answer: It’s too early to know when James will be able to rejoin the Lakers ’starting lineup. In the last 82 seasons he has missed an average time of high ankle sprain in about 10 games, According to injury expert Jeff Stotts. However, Stott noted that a faster return is possible.
Since the 2018 breakdown Klay Thompson’s ankle sprain:
The timeline for recovery from ankle sprains varies greatly, including the severity of the injury, the associated joint, and any other injuries associated with it. High ankle sprain treatment is the same as normal middle or side ankle sprain, but it usually takes longer to heal. The main reason for this long recovery time is related to the interruption of overall stability and the potential widening of the ankle mortise.
Los Angeles has struggled unexpectedly When Davis and James sit down, but the Lakers aren’t nearly as good worried about their seeds along with having a healthy list for the postseason. They will probably be very cautious about James ’recovery schedule.
