Superstar LeBron James is widely considered to be the face of the Los Angeles Lakers, and they are clearly a much better team when he is on the court. The star has been sidelined for a while with a foot injury, though it seems as though he will end up returning at some point this season. 

There has been a lot of speculation about a potential return for LeBron James. Recently, it was reported that LeBron James was overheard telling a arena worker that he will definitely be back for the playoffs.

There is no doubt that this is a piece of good news for Los Angeles Lakers fans. LeBron James is the key to the Lakers making a deep run in the playoffs, as what he does offensively cannot be replicated by any other member of the team. However, it is important that LeBron James take his time and recover fully, as he and the Lakers cannot afford for him to have a serious injury this close to the playoffs.
