Los Angeles Lakers stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis suffered some unfortunate injuries last season that somewhat led to the team’s demise in the 2021 NBA Playoffs.
As a result, Lakers officials are worried that the window with James and Davis may be tinier than they first imagined.
“The injuries to James and Davis last season were an unwelcome reminder of that much, leading some Lakers officials to worry that this window might be even shorter than they’d originally hoped,” wrote Sam Amick of The Athletic. “As such, they’re in the process of turning over all the proverbial stones in search of the right piece(s) to return to the NBA’s mountaintop. Their time is now, in other words — again.”
James, 36, went down with a severe ankle injury shortly after All-Star weekend in March.
