Lakers say LeBron James (knee) is out tonight vs. 76ers.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 23, 2022
ANALYSIS: This is not good timing for the Lakers seeing how they're barely staying in the play-in picture. The Lakers are currently one game ahead of New Orleans in the race and three games ahead of San Antonio. If this knee injury turns out to be a long-standing issue, that could be the final death blow.
