LeBron James remains “day-to-day” with his re-aggravated right ankle injury, Lakers coach Frank Vogel told reporters Monday night.
James suffered the injury in Sunday’s loss to the Raptors. He had just returned to the lineup vs. the Kings on Friday, missing the previous 21 games. That was a career-high in missed games for James, and now he’s at 22.
Whether it will be 23 remains to be seen. The Lakers’ next game is Thursday vs. the Clippers and James’ status is TBD. On the bright side for LA, Monday’s win over the Nuggets snapped a three-game skid.
“I know getting back to 100% is impossible. I’ll never get back to 100% in my career,” James told reporters Friday. “But I felt comfortable where I knew I could get on the floor and help my team win.”
