Interesting that this is from a UK site, hope it's just a rumor.

Wouldn't be the first time the Lakers were less than honest about an injury.

i never understand this approach. you always want to prepare and anticipate for the worst and hope for the best. but the Laker medical staff are the opposite, they always underestimate the injuries (from Karl Malone, Kobe and now LBJ).

Express.co.uk —> grain of salt, not the best source tbh

Having said that, I don’t think the Lakers told the truth. It’s more than a grade 1 strain and it seems the timeline is getting to the point where it’s grade 2 or more.

This news has not been published anywhere else. Not on ESPN, not on CBS, not on NBA.com, SI.com, not on reddit. I really hope that express.co.uk won't become the insider for all things NBA.

Please, be wrong.

It’s definitely BS, mods need to delete this before fans get a heart attack.

Some UK site quoting some New York Hip Hop blog site. I'll wait for a legit source to give an injury update.

I read through the fog because I didn't want to click ACCEPT ALL. Who knows what you're accepting. LOL! Through the fog, I red they got their source from OnSmash. Never heard of either site.

But a stunning report from OnSmash.com claim James is suffering from a 'sports hernia injury' which could keep him ruled out for at least another month


lol

It's pretty wild that in 2019, with all we know, it's still so incredibly easy to disseminate clickbait all over the internet and get people to buy it.

but the silence from the Lakers is definitely having me worried. if it is on pace for normal recovery, then why not give an update once a week?

About a week ago they said he'd be re-evaluated in a week.

I don't know how long LeBron's going to be out, but OnSmash.com isn't going to be the first people to know. Jesus people, come on.
