LeBron James is going to give that right ankle one more day of rest today vs. Knicks -- and target a return on Wednesday vs. Rockets, sources tell @mcten and me.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 11, 2021
James originally made his return after a 20-game absence on April 30 against the Sacramento Kings. He also played two days later against the Toronto Raptors but sat out the next four contests as the ankle continued to give him problems.
James is averaging 25.0 points per game on 51.3 per cent shooing from the field in 43 games so far this season, his 18th in the NBA.
