The Lakers have currently missed 10 games since the NBA went on hiatus — which will reach three weeks on Wednesday.
Lakers superstar LeBron James on Monday resumed exercising with the assistance of longtime athletic trainer Mike Mancias at his L.A. home.
James appeared as a guest on the “Road Trippin'” podcast last week and proposed a truncated finale to the regular season — five to 10 games — if and when play resumes, followed by the postseason.
“One thing you can’t just do is go straight to the playoffs,” James said. “Because it discredits the 60-plus games that guys had fighting for that position.”
There have been more than 160,000 reported cases of the coronavirus in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website, causing more than 2,800 deaths.
