LeBron James is to the point that his return to the court will be a game-day decision Thursday.The 34-year-old superstar has participated in full contact scrimmages this week for the first time since straining his left groin Dec. 25 but continues to be listed as day-to-day. Almost that time again! I’ve missed you so damn much! 😤🦁 🗣🤯#BeenACagedAngryLion. #striveforgreatness🚀 #jamesgang👑 photo cred @graydientvisualsA post shared by LeBron James (@kingjames) on Jan 28, 2019 at 3:10pm PSTJames originally suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Lakers’ win over the Warriors on Christmas Day. He met with trainers on the court, appeared to tell them he “felt it pop” and then headed to the locker room without assistance. James underwent an MRI the following day and said on Twitter he “dodged a bullet.” But, he has missed the Lakers’ last 16 games. Los Angeles (26-25) is 6-11 in his absence and has fallen into the ninth spot in the Western Conference standings, two games back of the Clippers — an added twist on whether James could return for Thursday’s intracity matchup.Los Angeles signed James to a four-year, $153.3 million contract in July. He is averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 34.6 minutes per game this season.

It will be about how he feels later that night and into what he feels like the next day when he wakes up, more importantly.”So, not a final test, just another day of seeing if he’s ready yet.”James said on Instagram later Monday it was “almost that time” to play again.
