LeBron James is going to miss some considerable time.

Without LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers are a team that is fairly lost and confused out on the court. They have struggled without him on the floor, and if they want to make the playoffs, LeBron needs to be out there playing at his best. However, that isn't exactly how things are going to go, moving forward. This is because, on Sunday night, James hurt his foot while playing against the Dallas Mavericks. Although he was able to finish out the game, he was still in a considerable amount of pain following the match. So much so that he was seen limping in the arena.

At this point in the season, the Lakers only have about 22 games left to play. They need to string together a winning streak, especially since they are only a few games back of sixth place. Unfortunately, doing this will be that much more difficult without LeBron on the court. Overall, the team will now need to rely on its younger guns, as well as Anthony Davis. Davis is someone who is injury prone, and now, the Lakers need to pray that James can come back in time for a late push.

LeBron Has Ways To Go

Earlier today, we reported that LeBron James would be missing an indefinite amount of time. However, he had not been ruled out for the entire season. Now, according to Shams Charania, we have a clearer sense of LeBron's injury timeline. As he explains, “LeBron James is expected to miss an indefinite amount of time… I’m told likely at least 2 or 3 weeks." After two weeks, the team will reevaluate him and then make an official decision on what to do.

Overall, Lakers fans can't do anything except hope for the best. LeBron is someone who has prided himself on his ability to be available. Having said that, there is a very good chance he is able to come back and be successful. Whether or not the Lakers will be out of the playoff picture by then, still remains to be seen.
