LeBron James out Wednesday night vs. Jazz
How much does LeBron James matter to the Lakers?
Let Tom Haberstroh of NBC Sports give you the numbers:
Since returning from the groin injury Jan 31, LeBron is averaging 27.5 points, 10.1 assists, 9.0 rebounds. The Lakers are +7 with him on the floor and -158 when he hits the bench— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) March 27, 2019
That should make the Utah Jazz feel good about their chances tonight because LeBron is out, missing the second night of a back-to-back.
Just as a reminder, also out are Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Josh Hart. Meanwhile, Reggie Bullock, Tyson Chandler, and Mike Muscala are all questionable.
Be prepared. If you wear a Lakers’ jersey to the game tonight at Vivint Smart Home Arena, and you’re sitting within three rows of the court, Luke Walton may turn point to you, and try to put you in the. The Lakers need players.
