El Segundo, Calif. , lebron james Of late there was no tear in his waist Los Angeles Lakers’ damage to la clippers An MRI on Wednesday revealed Thursday.
Lakers coach Darwin Hamm said that James is progressing day by day. The team has officially listed him as out for Friday’s game against Sacramento Kings Due to left adductor stress.
“It’s not torn, it’s the biggest thing that he didn’t tear anything,” Haim said. “So that was good news. You know, I bet it’s painful. Suspicious, day-to-day, whatever — I’m just glad nothing was cracked.”
As difficult as the start of the season has been for the Lakers 2-9, James has a silver lining when it comes to injury timing.
The Lakers play against the Kings at home on Friday and against on Sunday Brooklyn Nets and then do not play any other game against until Friday, November 18 Detroit Pistons, James could take eight days to recover from his injury and miss only two games in the process.
James missed 17 straight games in his first season with the Lakers in 2018-19 as a tear in his left groin and eventually called things off before entering off-season rehab at the end of the 82-game schedule.
James told reporters on Wednesday that his current troubles are “not as bad” as those he faced four years ago.
Ham presented an optimistic front despite the latest challenge facing his team.
“People get caught up in wanting to be mean just because you’re a little slippery or you’re skipping a few games,” Haim said. “But I’m not made that way. I’m not wired that way. My point is to look at the positive, look at the negative, what went wrong, how can we fix it? What went right, how do we Stay tuned and put it out there the way we’re trying to get better as a team in a business way.
“So, all the emotions and fake rah-rah stuff, no, we don’t do that. We just keep it real, keep it straight and try to be better every day.”
When reporters were allowed in at the end of Thursday’s practice, James was wearing a sleeve on his left leg and slippers on the practice floor.
He refused to talk to the media.
While James did not elaborate on his injury, he took to social media to address the Nets guard’s five-game suspension Kyrie Irving Serving to promote a documentary that contains misinformation and anti-Semitic tropes and then reticent to apologize for his actions.
I think the floor is excessive IMO. He is not the person he is being portrayed as. Anyway back to my rehab session.

The Nets have outlined a series of requirements that Irving must meet before his suspension can be removed, meaning the suspension could last more than five games unless he meets them.
Last week, James condemned Irving’s decision to share the documentary.
“He did some damage and I think that’s unfortunate,” James said. “But I wouldn’t stand in a position to harm people when it comes to your voice or your stage or anything. So it doesn’t matter what color your skin is, how tall you are, who you are. If you are promoting a community or soliciting or saying hurtful things that harm people, I don’t respect it. I don’t condone it.”
The Lakers hosted Brooklyn in the first game on the Nets’ schedule on Sunday after a five-game suspension period for Irving had passed.
