LeBron James will not play for the Lakers against the Bucks on Tuesday night

Lakers’ Struggle for Playoffs: Anthony Davis and D’Angelo Russell to Step Up Without LeBron James”.

The Lakers are closely monitoring LeBron James’ ankle issue, known as left ankle peroneal tendinopathy. Since before the All-Star break, they have been keeping a close eye on his foot to allow more time for it to heal. As a result, he will not be playing on Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks in a game that will be nationally televised.

The Lakers are in desperate need of wins to secure a spot in the playoffs. With a record of 39-32, they are currently in ninth place in the Western Conference and trailing the eighth-seed Phoenix Suns by 2.5 games (two in the loss column). However, they have already clinched the tiebreaker. To move up to the eighth seat, they need to win 7 out of their final 11 games while hoping the Suns lose 6 or more games.

LeBron James remains a vital player for the Lakers, serving as the energy barometer for the team in his 21st NBA season at age 39. His performance greatly impacts their success, as they are much stronger when he is playing at his best. Without him, more responsibility falls on Anthony Davis, as well as shot creators like D’Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie.

In LeBron’s absence, the Lakers face a tough challenge against the Bucks who have improved defensively under coach Doc Rivers. It will be crucial for them to step up and secure wins in order to improve their playoff chances.
