Los Angeles Lakers Superstar Targeting Return To The Court Soon

The Los Angeles Lakers have been building as of late, and look to be right in position for a play-in spot at the very least, and most impressively, they've managed to build momentum without their leader, LeBron James.

James has been out of action for several weeks now due to an ankle injury, and while there's no official timetable on his return to the court, it's been reported that he is hoping to return for the final few games of the regular season.

After all these years, LeBron is still averaging 29.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists per game, and with the way the team have gelled in his absence, they may be a genuine threat in the playoffs upon his eventual return.
