LeBron James is listed questionable for the battle of LA with knee soreness, injury toll high for the Los Angeles Lakers.
After playing alongside the Top 24 players in the league in the All-Star game, LeBron James has to come back to the Lakers. Neither Russell Westbrook nor Anthony Davis were named all-stars this season and rightfully so.
While AD missed more games than he played in the past two seasons, the triple-double king is the poster boy for the Lakers’ struggles. It’s difficult to say whether it makes the fans happy or sad but in this trio, 37-year old LeBron James is the MVP. He is currently averaging 29.1 points a game and dropping 30 every other night like nobody’s business.
LeBron James is questionable with knee soreness
The 4x MVP has been struggling with his knee for quite some time now. He has missed over 13 games this season due to injuries. As much as his longevity is appreciated, age is certainly catching up to him.
He ended the all-star game on a very poetic note, hitting the game-winner in Cleveland. However, he felt knee soreness yesterday and is listed as questionable for the matchup against LA Clippers.

The depleted Clippers are already 2-0 against the Lakers this season and have a better record. If these teams meet in the play-in tournament with Kawhi and PG back, the Lakers have no chance of making the playoffs.
