LeBron James to Make Return Against Clippers

The Lakers got Rajon Rondo back last week.

"I'm about 80 [percent] right now, but I was good enough to feel confident and push throughout the game", James said.

"Worked my ass off to get back to this point", James said.

He and the Clippers' Lou Williams each scored 24 points in the game, while James added 14 rebounds and nine assists. The superstar almost recorded a triple-double as he scored 24 points, recorded 14 rebounds, and dished out nine assists.

LeBron James has waited since Christmas to return to the court.

"I'll gain my rhythm as the season continues, and I'm looking forward to seeing how I feel tomorrow. I told our coaches then, he's in".

Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, and Josh Hart were also on the floor for the Lakers, but it's anybody's guess how many more games they will play for the team. Everybody was huge. It is going to be different guys every night for our team.

Yet as far as his teammates are concerned, a half-fit James is infinitely better than an absent James after going into a tailspin without him, dropping from fourth to ninth in the West after a 6-11 run.

LeBron scored 53.3 FanDuel points in the win.

He has missed the previous 17 games with a groin injury.

James made a fallaway jumper to break a 118-118 tie with 1:15 left in overtime, and Stephenson followed with a three-point play for a 123-118 Lakers lead with 45 seconds remaining.

The Clippers were already without second-leading scorer Danilo Gallinari, who sat out his seventh consecutive game because of a back injury.
