The Lakers players went into self-quarantine after a test for the coronavirus. The test became necessary after four Brooklyn Nets players including Kevin Durant were tested positive for the virus. The Nets last played the Lakers before the league’s suspension.

While in his self-quarantine, James showed himself on his Instagram story on Wednesday and joked that he looked like Tom Hanks from the movie Cast Away.

“When they advise you to be quarantined for 14 days and isolated from nobody,” James said while playing with his beard.

Can’t even get a haircut from my barber. They want me to stay away from him. I’m looking like Tom Hanks off of ‘Cast Away.’ [Savannah] can’t even go get her hair done so she’s going to just cut them out herself. A little Whoopi Goldberg over here. The struggle is real in the James household right now.”

James then turned the camera towards his wife Savannah James, who was cutting her own hair.

“She can’t even go and get her hair done so she’s going to just cut them out herself,” he said. “The struggle is real in the James household right now. You got to do what you got to do.”

How is LeBron James passing his time amidst the Coronavirus pandemic?

Although, he isn’t showing himself much in public during the ongoing pandemic, James has been active on social media.

Following his activity on social media might lead to a fair idea of how he has been spending his time. “Netflix and chill,” seems to be his mantra to bide time.

His most recent tweet reads: “Nap was amazing! Now headed to the wine cellar. And finished watch #SelfMadeNetflix Madam CJ Walker story.”
