Fri Feb 2311:06LeBron James Likely To Play Friday
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) missed the team's first game back from the break due to an ankle issue that he talked about during All-Star interviews. Head coach Darvin Ham said that "in all likelihood" James will return to the starting lineup on Friday night against the San Antonio Spurs. Giving everyone the matchup they want to see with James and Anthony Davis against Victor Wembanyama.

Wed Feb 2121:23LeBron James Out Versus The Warriors
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) won't play against the Warriors on Thursday. The multi-time MVP has battled an ankle injury of late, with multiple reports indicating he's received treatment for it. He did log 14 minutes in the All-Star game on Sunday evening. However, the Lakers are looking to make a postseason push, so the team will need James at 100%. Nevertheless, Anthony Davis (Achilles, hip), assuming he plays, is a lock for all fantasy lineups without James on the floor. On the other hand, Rui Hachimura, D'Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, and Spencer Dinwiddie should all get more chances on the scoring end.

Wed Feb 2116:11LeBron James Excused From Practice Wednesday
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) was absent from practice on Wednesday and is expected to join the team in San Francisco for their game against the Warriors on Thursday. The 39-year-old played only 10 minutes in the All-Star game on Sunday and is currently undergoing treatment on his left ankle, which might potentially sideline him for the Lakers' upcoming game. Taurean Prince, Max Christie, and Rui Hachimura are all potential candidates to receive increased playing time if James is unable to play. He maintains averages of 24.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 7.8 assists in 34.9 minutes per game this season.

Sun Feb 1818:57LeBron James Getting Treatment On Ankle
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) will suit up for Sunday night's All-Star game. However, per James, he'll be limited. The multi-time MVP has battled various ailments throughout the 2023-24 campaign. But he's received treatment over the last few days for his left ankle issue, with more to come moving ahead. The 39-year-old continues to make a difference for fantasy managers this season, averaging 24.8 points, 7.8 assists, 7.2 boards, and 1.3 steals. He's also shot 39.5% from deep, one of the best averages of his career. James was also recently asked about his retirement plans. Yet, he didn't provide a definitive update regarding how many more years he has left. Additionally, the 2003 No. 1 overall pick didn't specify if he'd hang it up as a Laker. At any rate, Los Angeles will have their first game after the All-Star break on Thursday evening in Golden State. Fantasy managers should expect James to have an injury designation, although there's a real chance he won't play.

Thu Feb 1519:39LeBron James "Committed To The Lakers"
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James was the topic of trade rumblings before the deadline. However, his agent Rich Paul, speaking on the Stephen A. Smith Show, indicated that his client isn't going anywhere. "He's committed to the Lakers," said Paul. "Obviously, there's ups and downs and emotions throughout the course of a season, but ultimately, LeBron's committed to the Lakers." The trade deadline is in the rearview mirror, and the multi-time MVP is still on the roster. There were reports Golden State attempted to acquire him. However, that clearly never happened. James remains a top fantasy producer despite various injuries over the last few years. He's averaging 24.8 points, 7.8 assists, and 7.2 rebounds this season. Even better, he's shooting 39.5% from deep, the second-highest mark of his career. Nevertheless, the 39-year-old could have at least a few more seasons left in the tank, and he's anticipated to remain one of the best players in the National Basketball Association until he decides to eventually hang up his shoes.

Wed Feb 1408:22LeBron James To Be Rested Wednesday
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) will be rested on Wednesday versus Utah. The Lakers finish off a back-to-back on Wednesday, and the veteran star will use the night to rest his left ankle, which has bothered him for a while. Despite the injury, James has featured in 13 of the team's 15 games in 2024. James fully plans to play in the All-Star Game on Sunday, and he will then have a nice break until Feb. 22, when the Lakers continue their campaign versus Golden State. Taurean Prince will likely hop back into the starting unit as James' replacement on Wednesday.

Mon Feb 1220:34LeBron James, Anthony Davis Land On Injury Report
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) and center Anthony Davis (Achilles) are listed as questionable ahead of Tuesday's game against the Detroit Pistons. There is no shock here as both James and Davis are regulars on the injury report. The Lakers seem to list them as questionable ahead of basically every game. Usually, James and Davis are able to suit up, but both players are playing through issues right now. If they sit, Rui Hachimura and Jaxson Hayes would see increased roles in the rotation.

Sun Feb 423:04LeBron James Tagged As Questionable Against Hornets
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) has been listed as questionable again for their Monday night game against the Charlotte Hornets. While James was unable to play two games ago against the Boston Celtics, he played 40 minutes against the New York Knicks on Saturday. With a heavy workload in that game, the Lakers could decide to let him rest in this one against a weaker opponent. Anthony Davis (Achilles/hip) is also listed as questionable, however, so they may still need James on the floor. Fantasy managers will want to check back in for any updates as the game gets closer. If James can't suit up, Austin Reaves and Taurean Prince would see some heavy minutes while Rui Hachimura would get some more action too.

Sat Feb 320:06LeBron James, Anthony Davis Active On Saturday
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) and center Anthony Davis (Achilles) are both active ahead of Saturday's game against the New York Knicks. Both players are back in the mix after sitting out of Thursday's contest. The return of these players means that Jaxson Hayes will head back to the bench. Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) was starting for James, but he suffered an injury during Thursday's game. As a result, Vanderbilt will miss time, which should mean more minutes for Rui Hachimura and Hayes in the rotation. Fantasy managers can get James and Davis back in their lineups for Saturday.

Fri Feb 221:47LeBron James Won't Be Traded, Per Agent
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game with the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. But the biggest story surrounding the multi-time MVP isn't his health but whether he'll remain a Laker. Recent reports have surfaced suggesting he could be on his way out of Los Angeles. However, his agent, Rich Paul, shot down those rumors, stating, "LeBron won't be traded, and we aren't asking to be." Of course, anything is certainly possible, especially with Los Angeles struggling to remain in the playoff conversation. Yet, as long as James remains on the floor, which has been a challenge over the last few years, he should continue to be a valuable asset for any fantasy manager, no matter what uniform he's wearing moving ahead.

Fri Feb 218:21LeBron James Listed As Questionable For Saturday
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Saturday's game against the New York Knicks. The veteran forward was forced to miss Thursday's game due to an ankle injury. Jarred Vanderbilt (foot) drew the start in his absence, but Vanderbilt wasn't able to make it through the game without getting injured. Now, Vanderbilt is expected to miss time, which means the Lakers could be thin at the forward spot for this game. Rui Hachimura and Jaxson Hayes could be asked to play big roles if James sits out on Saturday.

Thu Feb 118:33LeBron James Out Against Boston
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is out for Thursday's contest against the Boston Celtics. Thursday's clash between two storied franchises has lost plenty of luster, with the Lakers also ruling out co-superstar Anthony Davis (Achilles/hip) against the Celtics. Dealing with left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, King James sets his sights toward returning for Saturday's battle with the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. D'Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves should orchestrate L.A.'s offense and experience big jumps in usage on Thursday, but this game has a chance to get out of hand. Reaves dropped a season-high 28 points with Davis out of action in Tuesday's defeat to the Atlanta Hawks, while Russell is running hot with averages of 25.2 points, 6.1 assists, and 4.3 three-pointers on 48.3% shooting from deep over his last 10 games.

Sat Jan 2709:51LeBron James Questionable For Saturday's Action
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) continues to carry a questionable tag on the injury report ahead of Saturday's battle with the Warriors. He missed his fifth game of the season on Tuesday against the Clippers but returned to the court Thursday versus Portland and should have a good chance of featuring on Saturday. However, if he isn't good to go, Rui Hachimura will likely fill in for James again in the starting unit. He produced an 11-point outing in 30 minutes against the Clippers. In seven starts across the entire season, Hachimura has posted 13.0 points with 3.7 rebounds.

Significant support from D'Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves is essential to the team's success this year, and each scored at least 20 points in this game. James is averaging 24.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 7.5 assists in 34 minutes per game this season.

Wed Jan 2420:48LeBron James Listed As Questionable For Thursday's Game
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's game against the Chicago Bulls. James was held out of Tuesday's contest and remains on the injury report heading into Thursday. The fact James is on the injury report really shouldn't shock anyone. James has been a regular on the injury report all season long. His absence on Tuesday resulted in Taurean Prince drawing the start. He put together a decent night, but isn't a must-have streaming option. Fantasy managers will have to check back on Thursday for another update on his status.

Both Prince and Rui Hachimura are likely to see a boost in value with James sidelined on Tuesday.

Fri Jan 1912:49LeBron James Questionable Friday Against Nets
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is officially questionable to play in the team's Friday night game at home against the Nets. Despite typically entering games with the questionable tag, the Lakers' star has only missed four games this year and should have a good chance to suit up. With the Lakers being off last night and tomorrow, James likely will give it a go on Friday. If he doesn't end up playing, Jarred Vanderbilt and Rui Hachimura would most likely step in for expanded minutes.
