James said there are still several processes to go through in his recovery phase to be able to return to 100 percent fitness and fully contribute to the team.

Currently the Lakers are fighting to maintain position for the opportunity to play in the playoffs. The Los Angeles Lakers are in eighth position in the Western Conference NBA standings with 38 wins and 38 losses (38-38).

The Lakers, who still have six games remaining, must remain vigilant because the competition in the mid-table is very tight. Above the Lakers are the Minnesota Timberwolves in seventh position with a 39-38 record.

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans in ninth place have the same record as the Lakers, which is 38-38. The Oklahoma City Thunder in 10th position also have a game record that is not much different, namely 38-39.
