LeBron James is listed as “probable”
for Tuesday night’s game at San Antonio with right ankle soreness.
He referenced the ankle after the win vs. Memphis, referring to the collision under the hoop with Desmond Bane. LeBron (19P, 6A, 6R, 2S, 2B) played the rest of the game. – 4:09 PM

Wrote about the play we’ve all been waiting to see: the LeBron-Westbrook pick-and-roll.
The Lakers ran it three times in a row in crunchtime yesterday, so I covered the good, the bad and the possible adjustments that will come out of it.

Lonnie, on LeBron doing LeBron things at age 36 in his 19th season:
“Man, he’s one of one. That’s LeBron James. He’s been killing it since he’s been playing basketball. The dude is built for greatness. It’s very dope to see someone playing at that high caliber at that age.” – 1:45 PM

More on this storyline

Dave McMenamin: The Lakers are listing LeBron James as probable for tomorrow’s game in San Antonio pic.twitter.com/cgWmliXajQ -via Twitter @mcten / October 25, 2021

Grizzlies forward Desmond Bane collided with James’ right leg in the first half, causing James to tumble to the floor. The Lakers star remained there for several minutes as L.A. called timeout so the team’s medical staff could check on him. For James, it was a scare involving the same leg that suffered a high right ankle sprain last season when the Atlanta Hawks’ Solomon Hill crashed into his lower body while lunging for a steal. That injury caused him to miss 26 games and didn’t fully heal until months into the offseason. “The first thing I was thinking to myself was, ‘Not again,'” James said afterward. “Because obviously it was almost similar but not the same kind of play. Guy falls into my leg and there’s nothing you can do about it and I couldn’t get my leg out of there in time.” -via ESPN / October 25, 2021
