LeBron to miss at least three more National Basketball Association games for Lakers

LeBron to miss at least three more National Basketball Association games for Lakers

His recovery schedule will keep him out of the Lakers' upcoming two-game road trip and a home game against Detroit next week.

The teams split a pair of earlier meetings, with each claiming a four-point decision at home.

Unfortunately for Los Angeles, it appears James will have to miss at least another week of action.

All of these things have contributed to the Lakers' recent downturn, though the loss of James certainly stings the most. That means James will be sidelined at least four more games, including important matchups with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks.

Rajon Rondo (hand), Kyle Kuzma (back), JaVale McGee (illness), and Tyson Chandler (back) have all missed time or been limited recently due to a variety of afflictions.

Trump says shutdown could last for 'months or even years'
When he ran for president in 2016, he vowed Mexico would pay for the wall, which it has refused to do. Trump is set to meet with congressional leadership again at the White House on January 4.


Kobe Bryant #24 of the Los Angeles Lakers waves to the crowd against the Utah Jazz on April 13, 2016 at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.

James, a three-time NBA champion who has played in the past 8 NBA Finals, left Cleveland in July to sign with the Lakers.

"Once shots didn't go in (in the fourth quarter), guys start trying to do it on their own", he told reporters.

Nikola Vucevic had 16 points and 24 rebounds for Orlando. Derrick Rose is also unlikely to play as he recovers from an injured right ankle. "He's a great defensive player, obviously". Since then, wins have been few and far between as the Lakers haven't been able to adapt to life without their biggest star. The LeBron-less Lakers will clearly be looking to bounce back against the Wolves.
