NBA Daily Injury Report (Jan 10): LeBron James out

LeBron James (38, 206cm) is absent from Denver.

On the 10th (Korean time), the 2022-2023 NBA regular season Denver Nuggets and LA Lakers will play at the Ball Arena.

Two teams that have been on the rise lately. Denver is currently at the top of the Western Conference with Memphis Grizzlies with a record of 26-13, and the Lakers are also close to a 50% win rate (19-21), breaking away from sluggishness at the beginning of the season and winning 5 in a row. For both teams, the result of this match is expected to be an important crossroads in whether or not the upward trend continues.

However, unfortunately, there is a missing variable in this game. Lebron James being out of play. Reportedly, James has been playing with ongoing left ankle pain lately, and as a result, he will not be playing today. This is James, who took a break from the Miami Heat match on the 5th with the same injury. It seems that he intends to stock up on his exhausted stamina through the continued expedition schedule. 토토사이트

James, who turned 38 at the local age this year, is averaging 37.4 minutes, 38.0 points (FG 58.0%), 9.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists in the last 4 games. Due to James’ absence, the vacancy will be filled by Juan Toscano-Anderson (29, 198cm). For reference, Denver is on a 10-game winning streak at home. Their most recent loss at home goes back to the Dallas Mavericks on Dec. 7.

Interestingly, though, the Lakers are on a five-game winning streak against Denver. In other words, one of the record marches that the two teams are continuing through this game will be broken unconditionally. [Injury update as of January 10th, 6:30 am
