Lakers Rumors: LeBron James set to return vs Los Angeles Clippers

  • LeBron James

Without James in the lineup, the Lakers went 6-11 so it was certainly a boost to have the King back on the floor.

James was considered "doubtful" to play against the Clippers Thursday morning, but had ramped up his return over the Lakers' last two practices.

Even without James and Rajon Rondo, they managed to stick around and make the game interesting, however, they ultimately lost the Clips 118-107.

If James remains out, it will dash the hopes of some within the Los Angeles Lakers organization who viewed the matchup at Staples Center as a potential return date for James after his almost five-week absence due to a left groin strain.

"Worked my ass off to get back to this point", James said. The Lakers (27-25) now sit in the ninth spot in the Western Conference standings, but their win over the eight-place Clippers (28-24) cut their lead to only a game.

"I'll gain my rhythm as the season continues, and I'm looking forward to seeing how I feel tomorrow".

Viewpoint: Not just an interim Budget
Goyal said the tax scrutiny would be done electronically eliminating any interaction between the tax authority and the taxpayer. Further, standard deduction has been raised from Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000, which will benefit 30 million salaried individuals.

"That's the tell-tale sign for me is how my body feels after having to play 40 minutes unfortunately, with the overtime".

Thursday will mark the end of the longest absence of his 16-year career. Everybody was huge. It is going to be different guys every night for our team.

James apparently showed up early to work out before the game and see if he could play, and things must have gone well.

Lou Williams scored a team-high 24 points and Patrick Beverley added 17 for the Clippers, who shot just 53 percent from the free-throw line.

The game could go either way, but the Lakers really, really need it go their way.

"You can't control your destiny in this league, but you can control your work ethic and how great you want to be".
