LeBron James Won't Play For The Lakers On Thursday Against The Clippers

Anthony Davis Celtics Pelicans

The Lakers have gone 6-11 without their superstar.

James did complete a full practice on Wednesday.

On the season, Brandon Ingram is averaging 17.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 3.0 assists, which puts Ingram on track to have his best season yet in terms of scoring.

The Lakers are now ninth place in the Western Conference and hold a record of 26-25.

The iconic forward has played in the post-season in all of the last 13 seasons and reached eight straight NBA Finals when he was in the East with the Miami Heat and then the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Although James continue to progress well in his recovery, the Lakers have not set any sort of expectation for his return, nor do they intend to do so.

While Luke Walton's team beat the Warriors by 26 points at Oracle Arena on Christmas Day, the back-to-back National Basketball Association winners gained their revenge with a 19-point win of their own earlier this month. The match-up between the two teams is the first of the season, with the Sixers scheduled to host the Lakers in Philadelphia in a couple of weeks.

Stop me if you've heard this one before, but the Lakers had a hard time taking care of the ball.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Clippers have been in decent form as they've won four of their last six games but they will be aiming to bounce back after falling just short in a 123-118 home loss to the Hawks on Monday. While he didn't participate in the team's scrimmage, head coach Luke Walton said he "looked good". "We'll keep prepping as if he's not going to play, and hope that he's healthy enough to start".

"It felt good. It's a different look".

This isn't the first use of fake joints we've seen on the hardwood.

Shortly after those comments, a Lakers spokesman revealed LeBron would not be available, say ESPN.
