LeBron James’ return from the longest absence of his career could come tonight against the Sacramento Kings, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

James has been out since March 20 with a high-ankle sprain.

The 36-year-old plans to test his ankle and make a game-time decision.

If James can’t play tonight, he’s likely to return as soon as May 2 against the Toronto Raptors.

James had originally been listed as “out” for tonight’s game, but is expected to be upgraded to “questionable,” Wojnarowski also notes.

The Lakers have gone 8-12 without James and currently sit in 5th place in the Western Conference with a record of 36-26.

Once James and Anthony Davis are back at full strength on the court together, the Lakers will be expected to make a push come playoff time.
