The Lakers will be without LeBron James. The team ruled out the forward for Thursday’s game against Oklahoma City and they don’t want to rush his recovery, so he is expected to lose several more games.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, James will miss at least a week and the team wants to be cautious about the injury of the player, who he missed two of the team’s first eight games.
James suffers from a strain in the muscles of the abdomen, which cost him two games a few weeks ago and he suffered after Tuesday’s game against the Rockets.
LeBron is averaging 24.8 points, 7 assists and 5.5 rebounds this season for the Lakers, who are 5-3.
Lakers receives Thunder Thursday before traveling to Portland on saturday. The following week, they host three games at the Staples Center: Hornets on Monday, Heat on wednesday and Timberwolves on Friday.
