LeBron James is expected to make his return to the floor when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. James has missed 25 of the past 27 games due to a right ankle injury, including Tuesday night's 101-99 overtime against the visiting New York Knicks. James considered returning for the game against the Knicks but decided Tuesday to take one more day to allow the ankle to heal.
Kobe Bryant's induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame is a tribute not only to greatness, but to the circuitous route he traveled to get there.
The Knicks have to win just one of their final three games to secure a spot in the top 6 of the NBA playoffs.
