LeBron James suffered a very scary looking ankle roll in Game 1, which scared a lot of people. Thankfully he was up and running and scored a dunk on the very next possession.

LeBron James has an ice wrap on his thumb as he talks post practice today. He says it happened during the Houston series, but that it won’t affect his play at all going forward.

Is LeBron James playing tonight vs Nuggets?
While the ankle and the thumb seem to be doing fine, LeBron James is listed on the Lakers’ injury report tonight owing to a sore right groin.
Ever since LeBron sustained the groin injury back in the 2018-19 season, it has been something that has been troubling the King over and over. It has put James on the injury list so many times this playoff alone.
Lakers injury report for Game 2:
Dion Waiters (sore left groin) is doubtful.
LeBron James (sore right groin) and Rajon Rondo (back spasms) are probable.

LeBron James might want to play to get 2-0 lead
LeBron James is playing his 17th season in the league right now. There is one thing that King James deserves appreciation for, and that is his fitness. LeBron puts all out on the floor and definitely takes hits while doing so. Despite all of that, he never misses a game, unless it is absolutely necessary for him to rest.
LeBron James’ toughness and resilience is among the things that make him such a great player. He is a leader both on and off the court and leads by example.
