While LeBron James has been ruled out to face the New York Knicks on Tuesday, it doesn't look like Lakers fans are going to have to wait much longer for him to return to the hardwood to put on a show like normal.

Per Adrian Wojnarowski, King James is planning to rest his ankle on Tuesday, but then suit up to take on the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.

James has missed a good chunk of the season with his ankle injuries, which has been a bummer for folks to see. The hope, though, is that he'll be able to be a full-go for the playoffs and help LA repeat as NBA Finals champions.
