Recently, a report appeared suggesting that the Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is “playing on one leg”. If true, such news would be a reason of concern for the defending NBA champions as the playoffs are just around the corner.

However, it seems that James is fine. At least, according to himself. The four-time NBA champion had to take a break after the his first attempt to return from an ankle injury.

LeBron led the Lakers to a play-in game against the Warriors with a triple-double of 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists and a game-winning three-pointer.

Via Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen & Roll:

“I’m good. I told you guys I was good. I’m good. That’s the most minutes I’ve played in a long time and I didn’t feel anything on that play. Draymond’s finger or thumb or whatever went directly into my eye, and that’s why I was down,” James said. “Just making sure I was okay, making sure I wasn’t bleeding and making sure I could see a little bit at least so I could finish the game.”
