LeBron James’ Health is Now the Lakers’ Biggest Concern

© Marcio Jose Sanchez/AP LeBron James used to be indestructible. Now, his health is the Lakers’ biggest concern.

LeBron James has spent the last two weeks exuding restless energy.

On good nights, the Los Angeles Lakers forward has coped with injury by serving as a Staples Center ambassador, making the rounds to personally greet celebrities at their courtside seats. On bad nights, James has strode out near center court to object to the officiating and headed for the locker room well before the buzzer during ugly losses.

There have been more bad nights than good without James for the West’s preseason favorites, who have an 8-8 record despite a soft and home-heavy schedule. The Lakers, who upgraded James to questionable for Friday’s contest with the Boston Celtics, have looked like a lottery team in the 10 games that he has missed with ankle and abdominal injuries. Instead of banking early wins and working through fit questions with Russell Westbrook following an offseason overhaul, the angsty Lakers have twice blown double-digit leads to the Oklahoma City Thunder, gotten run off the court by the Minnesota Timberwolves and Chicago Bulls and fallen back into the middle of the conference standings.
