Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin
LeBron James has begun on-court activity and a gradual basketball movement progression, per the Lakers.
There is no specific timeline for his return yet. – 1:43 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Last five games of the season:
at Rockets
at Jazz
at Clippers
Last three, all in LA, would make a lot of sense for a return target for LeBron, based on the ESPN/Athletic/TNT reports. – 1:39 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
The Lakers say LeBron James has begun on-court activity and “gradual basketball movement progression.” No timeline for his return.
Positive update for the team after Darvin Ham mentioned last night that LeBron still hasn’t been able to physically participate in shootarounds. – 1:34 PM

The NBA’s superstars change scenery on a whim without much consideration for the cast around them. Ask Cleveland, which lost Kyrie Irving once and LeBron James twice without a backup plan either time: The landing is rarely soft when you lose a star. cleveland.com/cavs/2023/03/f…8:03 AM
Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
Huge win for the Lakers. Now one game back in the loss column of the sixth-place Warriors with three winnable games (Oklahoma City, two with Chicago) ahead. And LeBron inching towards a return. – 12:38 AM

During timeout, LeBron James working a bit on his footwork in the post. LeBron also instructing Max Christie on various spin moves – 12:28 AM

Great (if depressing) nugget from @Sedano during the ESPN broadcast. The last time LeBron and Durant played against each other was Christmas 2018. AK – 10:31 PM
Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
In talking about LeBron James having input, #Lakers coach Darvin Ham said James was “physically unable to participate” in shootaround.

Interesting how the basketball universe is rearranging the planets in the final three weeks of the season. The Bulls get the 76ers who may be without an ailing James Harden. LeBron may miss the Bulls game. Paul George out vs Bulls . Portland has lost six straight-9 under .500. – 3:18 PM

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: “I wanna be known as one of the best player to play. Watching guys like Kobe growing up, I go to school and the debate is, who’s better, Kobe or LeBron? Who’s better, Kobe or Michael? I want those conversations to be about myself.”
