It seems like King James’ injury was a lot serious than we thought.
Not long after the Los Angeles Lakers were out of the playoff race, Dr. Karen Joubert, owner of Joubert Physical Therapy in Beverly Hills, shared a picture standing next to Lebron with an unexpected caption – Karen praised him for his willingness to return to action although he was suffering from pain.
Lakers fans are trash. He should have sat out the whole season. I wonder how many of you idiots are going to call this woman a liar. pic.twitter.com/GcZ9HJFj0O

“I want you all to know how bad his injury was and is, the pain he endured,” the doctor wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “Along with his amazing trainer, Mike Mancias, he was on the court in 6 weeks, it should have been 6 months. Unselfishly, he endured pain, pain, pain. He did not want to let the Lakers down, the fans down. But I know what he went through! I learned about determination, the will to win, how to get the job done. He is a force to be reckoned with. @kingjames @mikemancias1.”
Lebron returned to action late in January and carried the Lakers to a win over in overtime on the Clippers. James said “I am at 80 (percent) right now… it will take him a little time to get back”.
