Terrible news for the Los Angeles Lakers and Superstar LeBron James will miss tonight’s game against the # 3 Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference. James left Sunday’s game against the Toronto Raptors with a sore right ankle and is out against a major rival tonight.
The Lakers are not in a good position right now having lost 6 of their last 7 games and now without James on the field things are looking tougher for them. The Athletic’s Shams Charania reports the status of the 4x NBA champion for Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers is unclear.
“Lakers star LeBron James will miss today’s clash against Denver with a sore right ankle. His status for the next game, Thursday against Clippers, is currently uncertain.”
Losing LeBron at this point in the season is incredibly difficult for the Lakers. They are 7th in the Western Conference standings and if the situation does not improve soon they will be playing in the controversial play-in tournament, which James wants to avoid at all costs.
It is uncertain how the season will end for the Lakers, but they must have their superstar back if they want another run for the NBA title.
