LeBron James Enters COVID Protocol, Set to Miss Several Games for Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers season has had its ups and downs that’s for sure.

As of this week, it has hit yet another snag as superstar LeBron James has entered the league’s health and safety protocol after testing positive for COVID-19. He is expected to miss several games according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

“Obviously, it’s a huge loss,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said on Tuesday. “It’s disappointing. We just want the best for him right now. That’s where our thoughts are. And we have a next man up mindset.”

Talen Horton-Tucker started in James’ place last night against the Sacramento Kings and scored two points in 16 minutes of playing time. The team originally heard of James’ test results on Tuesday morning and arranged a method of transportation for the 36-year old to return back to Los Angeles.

“Hopefully, this is something that’s short term,” Vogel said. “We’ll see.”

Vogel also declined to comment on whether James was experiencing any symptoms, but Anthony Davis said following the Lakers blow out win that James is doing well and is in good spirits.

“He said he’s good,” Davis said after leading L.A. with 25 points. “I think he’s asymptomatic, which is a good sign, but we want to make sure that he gets back. Health is most important. This is bigger than basketball. He has a family. We want to make sure that he’s good no matter what.”

James is averaging 25.8 points, 6.8 assists and 5.2 rebounds on the season.
