The Los Angeles Lakers have been dealt a major blow as their star player, LeBron James, is likely to miss multiple weeks due to a right foot injury. Sources close to the situation report that the injury occurred during a game against the Dallas Mavericks, and James is now expected to monitor his foot in the coming days.
The news comes as a major setback for the Lakers, who are currently in the hunt for a playoff spot. With James out for an extended period of time, it is feared that the team may struggle to make the playoffs.
Yahoo Sports reports that James was quoted as saying, “F*n sucks” in response to the news of his injury. This is not the first time the Lakers have been dealt an injury blow this season, as their forward Anthony Davis has been out for multiple weeks due to an Achilles injury.
CBS Sports reports that the Lakers fear James could miss an extended period of time due to the foot injury. Meanwhile, Bleacher Report reports that the Lakers are feared to be without James for an extended period of time.
The Lakers will be hoping that James makes a speedy recovery and is able to return to the court soon. In the meantime, the team will have to rely on their other players to make up for the loss of their star player.
