AceShowbiz - LeBron James seemingly has progressed a lot after suffering a foot injury last month. According to a new report, the Los Angeles Lakers player was spotted out and about looking better following his right foot tendon injury that has sidelined him for the last two weeks.
On Sunday, March 12, NBA reporter Dave McMenamin wrote on his Twitter page, "LeBron James is back with the team for the Lakers' game against the Knicks, after about a week away. Lakers coach Darvin Ham said it 'was good for him to unplug a little bit.' "
He added, "As for the progress of James' right foot injury, Ham said: 'Everything is going according to plan.' " McMenamin also shared in a follow-up tweet that "James is out of the walking boot."
James reportedly scheduled to be re-evaluated in about two more weeks. Lakers fans, meanwhile, are hoping the NBA star to return to the lineup shortly afterward.
James injured himself following a game between Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, February 26 at American Airlines Center in Dallas. Despite his team's victory, James was seen left the venue limping. "It's been better," he said when asked about his foot afterward. "That's for sure."
The NBA star added, "But I definitely wasn't going to go to the locker room and not finish the game out tonight. Just understood the importance of the game and then with the momentum that we had, I felt like we could still win after being down. We'll monitor it the next couple days, see how it feels and go from there."
During ABC's TV coverage, James appeared to tell his teammates that he "heard a pop." However, Lakers head coach Darwin Ham James told reporters, "I didn't hear that, I didn't hear him say that at all."
James earned victory after finishing the game with 26 points on 10-for-23 shooting, eight rebounds, and three assists in 37 minutes. The athlete scored 11 points in the fourth quarter after being hurt, relying primarily on his post-up game to score points.
