Sources: LeBron James will play tonight vs. Celtics

·1-min read

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James will return on the road against the Boston Celtics on Friday night, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

James, 36, has been sidelined since Nov. 2 due to an abdominal strain. The four-time league MVP missed the last eight games; the team went 3-5 in that span.

The Lakers struggled early on to find continuity, leading to a disappointing 8-8 record.

Anthony Davis has been vocal in recent days about the team’s lack of championship-spirited play.

James appeared in six games this season, averaging 24.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and seven assists.
