Lakers’ head coach Frank Vogel says that James will be out indefinitely.

James has missed the last few games with knee soreness – this imaging confirms that the injury will require rehab.

The Lakers (24-26) don’t have time to lose if they want to climb into the top six of the Western Conference and avoid the play-in games.

James, 37, has been far and away the best Lakers player this season; averaging 29.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 6.3 assists on 52%/35%/76% shooting splits.

It will be curious to see if James – who has one year remaining on his contract – will want to stay in Los Angeles with a team devoid of tradable assets.
