Los Angeles Lakers main man LeBron James has been listed as probable ahead of his team’s matchup against the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday. 

James’ right leg collided against Memphis Grizzlies forward Desmond Bane in their recent game, causing the four-time MVP to crash onto the floor while enduring the immense pain. 

James said in an interview that he felt scared to what happened, since the leg that hitted Bane was the one that suffered a high ankle sprain last season against Atlanta Hawks’ Solomon Hill. That injury costed the superstar a 26-game absence and trouble of defending their title.

“The first thing I was thinking to myself was, ‘Not again.’ Because obviously it was almost similar but not the same kind of play. Guy falls into my leg and there’s nothing you can do about it and I couldn’t get my leg out of there in time.”

Asked about what he was thinking after the incident, James said that he was just checking himself to continue playing. 

“Just wanted to take a moment on the floor, just hopefully it wasn’t getting worse. Had an opportunity just to tie my shoe again and see if I’m able to go, I was able to continue to go.”

The Ohio native further stated that his leg felt “sore” after the winning effort against the Grizz, but he is planning to receive an “around the clock” treatment to examine if he can suit up against the Spurs.

Holding a 1-2 card, Lakeshow will certainly try to etch their second straight victory on the next game, with or without their leader on the floor.
