LeBron James vows return to playoffs after disappointing season

Former Highland Springs star Andre Ingram gets second stint with the Lakers

Was ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy onto something when he said the Los Angeles Lakers should consider trading LeBron James? Kyle Kuzma (ankle) has missed the last two games but was a full participant in practice on Monday, and the Lakers will see how Kuzma is feeling before the Bulls game.

Before James returned to action, sophomore point guard Lonzo Ball suffered an ankle injury on January 19 with an expected recovery timeline of 4-6 weeks - which was extended after team doctors discovered a bone bruise. It usually occurs in legs but can occur in the upper body, too.

This season, Ball averaged 9.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.4 assists, while shooting at 40.6 percent from the floor and 32.9 from three in 30.3 minutes of action. Through December, the Lakers maintained the fourth seed in the Western Conference. As one GM put it, the Lakers being on the verge of missing the playoffs proves that LeBron is "not good enough anymore to take four cadavers and get to the Finals", at least in the West.

A LeBron trade isn't happening, but the fact that the Lakers reportedly "contemplated" the move shows just how insane this season has been for the Los Angeles franchise. Bosh eventually retired due to blood clotting issues, but many other athletes have continued to compete. Last summer, Ball stayed off an injured knee to let it heal, only to have to undergo surgery later to fix a torn meniscus, preventing him from working on his game during the offseason. "But I'm going to be ready to go".

That's a price point needed to reach more consumers and generate the sales that the company needs to survive, Musk has said. Shares of the company, among Wall Street's most volatile in recent months, were roughly flat in early trading on Monday.

He spoke publicly Tuesday for the first time since January and his recent shutdown for the remainder of the season. I live playing every game like it's my last.

He has never been the subject of trade talks in his established National Basketball Association career, but LeBron James came the closest he has ever been to being traded this season. The trio has not been on the court together since Christmas Day.

The athlete plays on the G League's South Bay Lakers - a minor league team affiliate where he's spent more than 10 years before making his pro debut.

The Athletic first reported Ball would be shut down after his latest medical evaluation Saturday.
