According to Stadium, LeBron James’ ankle injury will take four to six weeks to heal.
James sustained a high-ankle sprain on March 20, and depending on how quickly he recovers, he may be out for the whole month of April.
The four-time MVP got injured in a match against the Atlanta Hawks.
With 10:50 left in the second quarter, Atlanta forward Solomon Hill collided with James’ right ankle when chasing down a loose ball. James grumbled as he rolled around on the floor, letting out a frustrated yell.
In 41 games, James, 36, has averaged 25.4 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 7.9 assists.
Starting with the game in which Lebron James was hurt, the Lakers have dropped three straight games. On Thursday night, the Los Angeles will take on the Philadelphia 76ers.
