Top LeBron James News

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Available against Spurs

    James (ankle) will play in Friday's game against the Spurs, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    Despite playing in the All-Star Game, James was held out Thursday against the Warriors to give his ankle extra time to heal. While there's no word of any restrictions, it's likely that the Lakers will be monitoring him closely.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Officially probable

    James (ankle) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Spurs, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Coach Darvin Ham said after Thursday's loss to the Warriors that James would "in all likelihood" play the second half of Los Angeles' back-to-back set, and the probable tag confirms that statement. While James is expected to suit up after resting Thursday, Anthony Davis (Achilles/hip) is questionable, so the Lakers may still be down a star player.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Should suit up Friday

    Lakers head coach Darvin Ham said after Thursday's 128-110 loss to the Warriors that James (ankle) will "in all likelihood" play Friday versus the Spurs, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    After playing light minutes in this past Sunday's All-Star Game while he continues to experience left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, James was held out for the front end of the Lakers' back-to-back set to open the team's second-half schedule. Fortunately for James and the Lakers, his absence Thursday looks to have been maintenance-related more than anything else. The Lakers' training staff will presumably re-evaluate James early Friday, but if he reports no renewed soreness in his ankle, he should be cleared ahead of the 10:30 p.m. ET tipoff. Expect James to handle his normal minutes load if he plays.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Won't play against Golden State

    James (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Warriors, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    James will miss his second straight game Thursday after receiving treatment on his left ankle over the All-Star break. Cam Reddish (ankle), Taurean Prince and Rui Hachimura are candidates to receive increased playing time in his absence. James' next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with San Antonio.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Uncertain for Thursday's matchup

    James said after Sunday's All-Star Game that the treatment he'll receive on his left ankle in the coming days could "possibly" sideline him for Thursday's game against Golden State, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    James was unavailable for the Lakers' game against the Jazz on Wednesday due to left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, but he started for the Western Conference in the All-Star Game. However, he didn't play in the second half of the matchup after saying before the game that he expected to have a minutes restriction. Before his departure, he logged eight points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists in 14 minutes. A better idea of James' status for Thursday's game could come into focus based on how he responds to his treatment over the next few days.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Has minutes limit for All-Star Game

    James (ankle) will have an undisclosed minutes restriction during Sunday's All-Star Game, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    James missed Wednesday's game against the Jazz due to left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, an issue he's dealt with for several weeks. He sat out Saturday's NBA All-Star practice but will serve as a captain and start for the Western Conference. James didn't give a specific number of minutes that he planned to play Sunday, but he said he's looking forward to playing with some of the younger players in the All-Star Game before calling it a night. He received treatment ahead of the All-Star game and will continue to receive treatment this week before the Lakers resume play Thursday against the Warriors.

  • Lakers' LeBron James: Ready for 20th All-Star Game

    James (ankle) didn't take part in Saturday's NBA All-Star practice but is still slated to serve as a captain and start for the Western Conference in Sunday's All-Star Game in Indianapolis, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

    James sat out the Lakers' final game before the All-Star break Wednesday in Utah due to left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, though his absence in Los Angeles' 138-122 win was mainly for maintenance purposes in the second leg of a back-to-back set after he logged 31 minutes a night earlier in a 125-111 victory over Detroit. His absence from Saturday's practice doesn't look to be a result of any lingering concern with the ankle issue, either, as James notably sat out the pre-All-Star Game practice session in 2023 before playing in the exhibition a day later. He'll be making his NBA-record 20th All-Star Game appearance Sunday and will be joined in the starting five by Nikola Jokic, Kevin Durant, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Luka Doncic.
