- Lakers star out indefinitely after suffering ankle sprain in loss
- NBA champions are already without injured Anthony Davis
LeBron James left in the second quarter with a high right ankle sprain that the Lakers said will sideline him indefinitely, and Los Angeles went on to fall 99-94 to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
Two hours after the game, the Lakers announced that James is out indefinitely. The defending NBA champions already are without All-NBA big man Anthony Davis, who has missed 14 consecutive games with a right calf injury and likely won’t play again until April.
Nothing angers and saddens me more than not being available to and for my teammates! I’m hurt inside and out right now. ♂️. The road back from recovery begins now. Back soon like I never left. #ThekidfromAKRON
