During the Lakers' loss, James suffered a high ankle sprain after colliding with Solomon Hill, who was attempting to steal the ball.
"Nothing angers and saddens me more than not being available to and for my teammates!" he tweeted after the game. "I’m hurt inside and out right now. The road back from recovery begins now. Back soon like I never left."
Following James' exit, there was speculation regarding Hill's play being a genuine basketball move. Multiple Lakers criticized Hill's action on the play, while the Hawks' forward defended himself on social media later that night.
"Would never disrespect the game and take a player out purposely... he knows that," Hill tweeted Saturday. "That’s all that matters to me. praying for a speedy recovery. #riptothementionstho #moredmsthansaweetie."
