LeBron James is expected to suit up for the Lakers tonight despite an ankle problem that has been troubling him for nearly a month.
LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are set to face off against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks tonight. This will be the first meeting between the 2020 regular season MVP and the 2020 Finals MVP.
The Lakers are fresh off of a disheartening loss to the Golden State Warriors, led by a 26 point and a 19 point effort from Steph Curry and Kelly Oubre respectively. Though the nature of the loss wasn’t all too pleasant, LeBron and co. do not have much to worry about at the moment as they boast a strong 11-4 record going into tonight’s game.
The Milwaukee Bucks are in a similar boat to the Lakers when comparing records as they are also the number 2 seed in their respective conference.
Will LeBron James suit up tonight against the Bucks?
Seems as though the ‘King’ does not want a miss a bit of NBA action as he hasn’t sat out a single game in the 15 bouts the Lakers have played. What makes this even more impressive is the fact that he has been reportedly powering through a left ankle injury.
He suffered a twisted left ankle that dates back to opening night against the Clippers and it is this injury that is necessitating his presence on the injury list.
Dudes like you watched only the warriors Lakers game and making judgements about Lebron lol the dude is playing like 30 minutes a game of course his 4th quarter numbers are down. He’s still playing elite defense and putting up mvp numbers at 36

He is currently listed as questionable going into tonight’s game. This would mean that there is technically a 50% chance he takes to the floor against the Bucks.
However, he doesn’t seem all too bothered by this injury. After all, he’s played 15 straight games. So it wouldn’t be surprising if he does in fact suit up for a game that could perhaps be a preview of the 2021 NBA Finals.
