Very good chance he plays, he will have 4 practices under his belt by Thursday.

Nothing has been said about the degree to which he will practice.

We will have to wait to find out. Saying there is a very good chance is a guess based on nothing.

I have been following every step of the way, LeBron was doing spot up shots and half court running this week, next week the next step for him would be to compete in team drills... I know what I’m talking about.

No offense but you think trades are on the horizon on a weekly basis.

What I am saying is that the only thing that has been released is that he is cleared to practice next week and that he will be evaluated from there.

It didn’t say to what degree he would practice (full or partial participant) or any targeted return date.

The only person I have seen thus far say that LBJ has a “very good” chance is Inspector Gadget.

In my uneducated complete guess I don't think he plays Thursday.

He doesn't practice until next week. Lakers have a game Monday so that is not a practice day. Which leaves Tuesday/Wednesday if they practice both days before Thursday's game.

It's definitely possible, but Lebron's agent made sure to point out that they won't rush Lebron. So I wouldn't put money on him playing.

Yup just like you knew what you were talking about with Rondo's injury.

I wouldn't be surprised if he played limited minutes that game to shake some of the rust off since they have a few days off again but if I had to bet on it i'd go with the Sunday game against Phoenix as his return.

I keep expecting an announcement that he’s out another month. Hope he plays against Minnesota, but wouldn’t be surprised if they say he’s back in March just to play it ultra conservative.

It's absurd that they think he needs to have a practice before he plays, as if he's gonna be confused as to what to do. If he's cleared for full-on scrimmage, then he's fine, so I don't buy the "we wanna see how he responds".

It’s the protocol stuff teams like to mention...what I don’t buy is the “if this was the playoffs, Lebron would be playing.”

They got 13 more losses to play with to realistically secure a playoff spot. It’s not even February. So if he could play, he should play because the margin for error is basically gone.

They just have have to win one or two more games than the clippers and kings from here on out. Seems pretty easy in those terms.

Let’s hope. They seem to be 2 pesky teams that have that will not go away vibe. I know the clippers have struggled lately but I think they will hang around because they work hard and grind.
