LeBron James could make his return to action in the clash between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics on Friday.

James has been sidelined for more than two weeks, as he is dealing with an abdominal strain. The Lakers are currently listing him as questionable for the game. “I hope, I hope,” LeBron James told Dave McMenamin of ESPN on Wednesday, following the 102-109 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

The four-time NBA champion has missed the past eight games, while he has only appeared in six games this season. The Lakers want to bounce back from the losses to the Bucks and the Chicago Bulls. They currently are at 8-8.
