The Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James are beginning to get momentum in the victory column. Another injury scare is the last thing they need.
However, King James only experienced that in the crucial Friday game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Milwaukee Bucks. It happened a few minutes into the fourth quarter. Khris Middleton, who was tied up with LeBron and fell awkwardly on his left ankle:
LeBron James, who tweaked his left ankle against Indiana earlier in the week, appeared to tweak the same ankle here early in the 4th Q getting tripped up on Khris Middleton.

The good news is that LeBron James overcame the injury and continued to play against the Bucks in the primetime exhibition.

Let’s hope the injury doesn’t worsen and doesn’t make LeBron James miss any more time in the upcoming games.
