343

The top player for the Los Angeles Lakers, LeBron James, won’t be participating in the game against the Kings that will take place on Wednesday at Crypto.com Arena. There is a gap of one and a half games between the two clubs in the Western Conference playoff race

The Kings are now ranked seventh in the West, while the Lakers are found in ninth place. Because of the peroneal tendinopathy in his left ankle, the Lakers have classified James as a not likely player, while Anthony Davis and Cam Reddish are considered to be possible. 

It has been determined that Christian Wood, Gabe Vincent, Christian Castleton, and Jarred Vanderbilt will not be participating. It is anticipated that Sasha Vezenkov would be unable to play for about one more week due to an injury in his right ankle.

On October 29, the Kings defeated the Lakers 132-128 in overtime at Sacramento, and on November 15, they defeated them 125-110 at Los Angeles. This season, the Kings have a record of 2-0 versus the Lakers.
