LeBron James to miss Los Angeles Lakers’ final 2 games due to sprained ankle

LeBron James’ season is over.

The Los Angeles Lakers announced Friday afternoon that James will not appear in the team’s final two games as he continues to recover from a sprained left ankle. He is expected to make a full recovery.

James was injured March 27 in a game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Despite the injury, he finished the game, playing 40 minutes and tallying 38 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists in the loss. Since then, he has played in only one of the Lakers’ last six games. Los Angeles has lost eight straight and has been eliminated from postseason contention.

James finishes his fourth season in Los Angeles averaging 30.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 6.2, assists over 56 games. This was the first season he has averaged 30 points or more since the 2007-08 campaign during his initial tenure with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
