While LeBron James wasn't able to play against the Golden State Warriors this Thursday night, he apparently will be back for this Friday night game against the San Antonio Spurs in the second leg of the back-to-back games.

Health has been the theme of this Lakers season and keeping James and Anthony Davis healthy and on the court has been a top priority. And that is still the mindset and motivation behind this treatment for LeBron overall.

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, James is hopeful that while he may miss minor time at the moment, this treatment will ultimately allow him to finish the season stronger:

"His status for Friday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs and Sunday’s game against the Phoenix Suns are to be determined. James has missed one game of back-to-back sets three previous times this season to manage the ankle. James only played a half Sunday, in part, to ease the workload on the ankle. There isn’t a significant concern James will miss extended time, but the hope is the treatment will enable him to finish the season stronger, league sources told ESPN."

Darvin Ham believes LeBron James will be back to face the Spurs

Following the loss to the Warriors, LeBron James apparently will be back tonight to face the San Antonio Spurs. LA's coach Darvin Ham said in the post-game presser that LeBron will likely be back for tonight's game. The team was severely shorthanded vs. Golden State.
