[Guide] How is James recovering from the recurrence of his back injury last week?
It is what the outside world and fans are most concerned about.
Today, James said in an interview after the Heat’s regular training that his back injury has not fully healed, but it is not serious enough to be unable to play, and he will adjust it.
Last week, in the game between the Heat and the Raptors, James suffered a relapse of his back injury during the fierce physical confrontation with the Raptors players. There was even news that he would miss the game against the Bobcats, causing the outside world to worry about him for a while.
But in yesterday’s game, Zhan Huang still appeared on the court as scheduled, contributing 26 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. He played with injuries and still played at a high level.
Talking about the back injury, Zhan Huang said: “Still in treatment, but it is not serious enough to rest for a game or two. I have experienced this kind of injury before, so I know how to adjust, and I am doing the same.
James has also been troubled by back injuries many times before. It can be said that the back injury is his “old friend”, and he is not unfamiliar at all. From the beginning of the season to now, the back injury has never been better.
However, through treatment and training, he has recovered from 50% at the beginning of the game to 95%. This time he was injured again, and Zhan Huang had to spend more time healing.
Zhan Huang participated in the regular training of the players today, and his condition looks very good, but he also said that if it comes time to rest, he will not hold on in the long run.
“If it does come to that time, I will choose (rest), and I will definitely think about myself and the long-term of the team,” James said.
And the efficient performance of the Heat’s recent bench lineup is also one of the important reasons why James can rest assured.
“Fortunately, our team’s bench has performed very well recently, which gave me a chance to breathe and adjust,” James said.
