LeBron James Participates In Full-Contact Drills, Return Is Imminent

"He was a full participant in that, so it was good to see", Walton said of James' participation in full-contact defensive drills. LeBron James is moving ever closer to a return to the court for the first time since injuring his groin on Christmas Day against the Golden State Warriors. He started participating in practice on January 20, taking part in five-on-five non-contact drills. In light of that, it would make sense for the Lakers to bring James back for that game, as having him sharp for the team's six road games makes more sense than bringing him during the stretch of road games.

He is averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 34.6 minutes per game this season.

The team's recent struggles have caused the Lakers to plummet to the ninth seed in the Western Conference.

Acting AG Matt Whitaker Says Mueller's Investigation Is 'Close to Being Completed'
Whitaker was installed as acting attorney general in November, after Trump ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Some Democrats have questioned whether Barr should recuse himself from overseeing Mueller because of his memo.

When LeBron James wants a change to happen, changes will happen.

Based on how things have gone lately, the Lakers can't afford to lose James for an extended period again. Shortly after reports out of Lakers' basecamp surfaced, pointing to LeBron's apparent rejection of Coach Walton, Lakers' were alerted of his imminent return.
