LeBron James finished Saturday’s victory over the Portland Trail Blazers with 21 points (on 7/15 shooting), seven boards, 16 assists, two steals, and one blocked shot in 37 minutes. Following the game, James confirmed he is ready to play against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night:
“I’m fine, I’ll be all right. Yes (it was the same part of the elbow I hit in Miami), pretty much. Yes, I’m planning on it. As long as this ice takes care of its business and I wake up comfortably and healthily, (then) yeah. I’m doing all right for myself,” LeBron said, per Sporting News.
The Lakers still have the second-best record in the NBA at 25-7, whereas James is averaging 25.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 10.8 assists per game, while shooting at 49.0% from the field this season.
