The Los Angeles Lakers have been grappling with LeBron James’ ankle injury, specifically his left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, for quite some time now. As a result, he has missed several games both before and after the All-Star break in an effort to give his foot more time to heal. Unfortunately, this means that he will not be playing in the upcoming game against the Milwaukee Bucks, which is set to be televised nationally.

Currently, the Lakers are in a desperate race for wins as they sit at ninth place in the Western Conference with a record of 39-32. They are just 2.5 games behind the Phoenix Suns, who hold the eighth seed (although the Lakers have clinched the tiebreaker). In order to secure a playoff spot, the Lakers need to win at least 7 out of their final 11 games and hope that the Suns lose 6 or more. If they can manage to go 8-3, they would jump ahead of the Suns.

Despite being in his 21st NBA season at age 39, LeBron James remains a vital player for the Lakers. His performance sets the tone for their energy and competitiveness on the court. When he is playing at his best, the Lakers are a force to be reckoned with. However, if he is not at his peak level of play, it becomes challenging for them to keep up with their opponents.

With LeBron out of action, the team will have to rely more heavily on players like Anthony Davis, D’Angelo Russell, and Spencer Dinwiddie to create scoring opportunities. This task will be especially challenging against a Bucks team that has improved defensively under new coach Doc Rivers. In order to secure a playoff spot without their star player, the Lakers will need to find new ways to win games and remain competitive on
