LeBron James Sends Message of Support to Sabrina Ionescu After Her Gruesome Injury

Sabrina Ionescu Injury

On Friday, WNBA rookie sensation Sabrina Ionescu went down with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury.

Luckily, it didn’t take long before it was revealed that she had suffered a sprained ankle, but nothing more serious than that.

Along with the positive prognosis, Ionescu got some encouragement from Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.

James knows the deep importance of staying healthy for basketball players. He has gained major notoriety for his ability to remain healthy throughout his storied NBA career.

In fact, last season, his first with the Lakers, was the first time in his career where he played less than 60 games. Most notably, he dealt with a groin injury that forced him to shut his season down early.

Luckily, James came back healthy and fresh for the 2019-20 season. He’s only missed a handful of games so far this year.

That fact is a big reason why the Lakers currently have a stranglehold on the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. That lead was increased on Thursday night when the Lakers beat the Los Angeles Clippers inside the NBA’s bubble in Orlando, Fla.

As for Ionescu, hopefully she is able to recover quickly and get back on the court. In her young WNBA career, she has already shown major flashes of greatness.

If she heeds James’ message, she’ll certainly be able to reach her full potential.
