LeBron James‘ workload is being intently monitored as a disappointing season in Los Angeles nears its conclusion.
James performed 31 minutes and 47 seconds within the Lakers’ 111-98 loss Thursday evening in Toronto, ending with 29 factors and 6 assists, and says the minutes restriction is a psychological problem.
Kawhi Leonard led the way in which for the Raptors with 25 factors and eight rebounds.
Per The LA Times:
James stated after the sport he doesn’t know whether or not he’ll play Friday.
“It’s challenging for me mentally because I’m so accustomed to being out on the floor, especially when I’m healthy,” James stated. “You know, but it’s a conversation between myself and my trainer and the coaching staff and the front office, and this is the direction that they wanted to go the remainder of the season given the lack of success we’ve had with our ballclub. So I trust the people in charge, and that’s what it is.”
Apart from James, no different Lakers starter scored greater than Rajon Rondo’s 13 factors. Kyle Kuzma and Reggie Bullock mixed made solely 5 of 18 pictures.
“We had some turnovers, and we had some offensive rebounds that we gave up, at critical points of time of the game,” James stated. “Sometimes two or three guys would be on the ball and they would come up with it. You can’t dictate if you can make shots from the perimeter or not … but some of the things that you can control is turnovers, we had 20, and some of the offensive rebounds we gave up.”
