Lakers’ LeBron James Injures Right Foot in Win Over Mavs
While the Los Angeles Lakers are celebrating an incredible comeback victory over the Dallas Mavericks in which they climbed back from 27-points down, they still left the game with some bad news regarding their top star.
According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Lakers star LeBron James sustained a right foot injury late in the third quarter of Sunday’s win, but he was able to finish out the game to help the Lakers notch the biggest comeback victory this season.
James finished with 26 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists in 37 minutes of action.
“It’s been better,” James said when asked about his foot afterward. “That’s for sure. But I definitely wasn’t going to go to the locker room and not finish the game out tonight. Just understood the importance of the game, and then with the momentum that we had, I felt like we could still win after being down.
“We’ll monitor it the next couple days, see how it feels and go from there.”
