LeBron Returns To Action Thursday Against Clippers

Luke Walton

It means you have value, and that means that potentially you are going to be in this league a long time, people want you.

"I am at 80 percent right now". I'm looking forward to seeing how I feel tomorrow.

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

Kyle Kuzma (left hip strain) and Josh Hart (left knee tendinitis) also returned Thursday.

Walton offered his update on James, leaving the door slightly ajar for a return, shortly before a team spokesman said James was out.

On Wednesday, Lakers head coach Luke Walton spoke about how James has looked at practice as of late.

The Lakers went 6-11 during James' absence and fell out of a potential playoff spot.

The three-time National Basketball Association champion had last played against the Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day, when he suffered a groin injury that kept him out for the next 17 games. The losing skid dropped them to the ninth seed from the fourth seed.

James said he trained just as hard when he was sidelined as he does in a normal season. Full contact. Felt good. "This is where I can shut out everything, be out there with my guys, command my guys, and get a win on the road".

Fortunately for them, Lance Stephenson continued to make timely shots and finished with 20 points while tying a career-high with five 3-pointers. Within seconds, the feeling from everyone inside Staples Center was that Stephenson's three-point opportunity would likely be wiped away and the Lakers guard would be hit with at least an offensive foul and a technical foul. The Clippers will be without starters Danilo Gallinari and Avery Bradley, as well as Luch Mbah a Moute.
