  • Lakers' LeBron James: Will sit out Monday

    James (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Nets.

    James continues to battle left ankle soreness and will take a seat for the first half of the Lakers' upcoming back-to-back set, marking his first absence since Jan. 9. It appears like the veteran forward's absence is simply a load-management situation, so expect James to return to action Tuesday against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Anthony Davis (foot) is also out Monday, so Thomas Bryant, Wenyen Gabriel, Rui Hachimura and Juan Toscano-Anderson are all candidates for increased roles against the Nets.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Receives green light

    James (ankle) will play in Saturday's game against the Celtics, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    James has dealt with a sore ankle lately but has managed to play through the issue with no restrictions. Saturday's contest will be more of the same after being upgraded from questionable to active. James has crossed the 30-point threshold in five of his last eight contests and is a nightly triple-double threat.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Questionable Saturday

    James (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against Boston, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    James continues to manage a sore left ankle, but he's been available for the last eight matchups and has averaged 33.1 points, 9.6 rebounds and 8.1 assists in 36.9 minutes per game over that stretch. He's posted four double-doubles across those eight appearances, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him available once again Saturday.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Leads rally to pull away late

    James supplied 20 points (8-20 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds and 11 assists across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 113-104 victory over the Spurs.

    James was connecting with Anthony Davis and new asset Rui Hachimura all evening, but the 38-year-old took matters into his own hands in the fourth quarter and almost single-handedly put the Spurs away for good. James has been on an incredible run, and the hits should keep coming now that Anthony Davis is back to pick up the slack.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Will play Wednesday

    James (ankle) is "ready to go" for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    There were some concerns James would sit Wednesday considering the contest was the second half of a back-to-back set. However, James will suit up, meaning the Lakers will have their star duo of James and Anthony Davis (foot) active together for the first time since Dec. 16. Although James would usually be set for a lower usage rate with Davis active, Davis will be under a heavy minutes restriction and will come off the bench, so James should continue to be the clear No. 1 option.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Questionable Wednesday

    James (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    James has played through his left ankle soreness recently and has been dominant, averaging 35.0 points, 9.7 rebounds and 7.7 assists in 37.1 minutes per game over his last seven appearances. He's still dealing with the issue ahead of the second half of a back-to-back set, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him suit up again. If James plays, he'll likely receive more support than usual, as Anthony Davis (foot) appears in line to return from a 20-game absence.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Drills career-high nine treys

    James contributed 46 points (16-29 FG, 9-14 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 133-115 loss to the Clippers.

    Even though James was on the wrong end of a decisive loss, he completed the 30-team Superfecta, scoring at least 40 points against every team in the NBA over his prestigious career. James also surpassed his all-time single-game record for made three-pointers with the nine treys. With his 101st 40-point game in his holster, James is rapidly closing in on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's career scoring mark. Heading into Wednesday's game against the Spurs, James is 178 points away from breaking the record.

    James (ankle) will play Tuesday night against the Clippers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.
