LeBron James has a workout partner as he continues to rehab from a high ankle sprain, and it’s not Bronny.
James shared a picture of himself and his six-year-old daughter, Zhuri, to Instagram on Thursday afternoon.
It seems LeBron really does not leave anyone out when it comes to his workout routines. Note also the boot on James’ foot.
The Los Angeles Lakers are proceeding with caution when it comes to the long-term health of their MVP. He was initially ruled out 4-to-6 weeks at the time of the injury, though the Purple and Gold are unlikely to rush LeBron James back before he is ready to go.
From the looks of things, James is grinding to ensure he is fit as soon as that ankle is ready.
Los Angeles is struggling without LeBron in the rotation. The Lakers are 2-4 since he went down against the Atlanta Hawks on March 20, with the only wins coming against lowly Eastern Conference foes in the Cleveland Cavaliers and Orlando Magic. Los Angeles suffered a 15-point loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.
James’ absence is doubly unfortunate for the Lakers because they are also without Anthony Davis, who is still nursing a calf injury. The previously team announced “The Brow” could resume basketball activities, but it is unclear just how much Davis has done as well as the extent of his ramp-up in advance of a return.
The Lakers will anxiously await the return of their stars. In the meantime, LeBron James has workout partners left and right, as even six-year-old Zhuri is hitting the gym.
