LeBron James to miss at least two weeks with right foot injury

The Los Angeles Lakers have started to make a push toward what they hope will be a playoff spot, as they have won four of their last five games.

But they will have to continue a good amount of that push without their franchise player.

In Sunday’s stirring victory over the Dallas Mavericks, LeBron James suffered a right foot injury and apparently heard a pop. He continued to play, and despite lacking mobility, he had an effective fourth quarter, scoring 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting.

He will reportedly be out for at least the next two weeks with that right foot injury.

This will be a stiff challenge, but an opportunity nonetheless for L.A.’s other players, particularly its newcomers, to step up and prove their worth.
