The Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder will play each other on Tuesday night in California. Against the Thunder, LeBron James will have the opportunity to surpass Michael Jordan as the NBA’s all-time top scorer. Tuesday night’s game between the LA Lakers and the Thunder is anticipated by fans. Who wants to see James smash the record.
LeBron James, their star player, is listed on the injury report as questionable. The four-time NBA champion might not suit up tonight, which is unfortunate. Due to a painful left ankle, he is doubtful about Tuesday night’s game and might not play.
The upcoming game will be more noteworthy because James is just 36 points away from shattering Kareem Abdul-all-time Jabbar’s scoring record. Unfortunately, Tuesday’s NBA game may not be a historic one. Also Read: Klay Thompson scores 42 points as the Golden State Warriors conquer over Oklahoma city by 141-114
LeBron James Current form
In the last three games, the four-time MVP averaged 27.0 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 8.0 assists. In these games, LeBron James led the Lakers to a 2-1 record. And even recorded a triple-double against the New York Knicks with a 28-10-11 score.
Shortly before the game, LeBron James’ injury status will be updated. Because this is a Western Conference game, James’ condition might not be known until 9 PM Eastern Time.
In the 2022–23 season, LeBron is averaging 30.0 points per game on 50.5% shooting. He will probably set the record against the Milwaukee Bucks or Golden State Warriors if he misses Tuesday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
For the Lakers forward to surpass Abdul-Jabbar, he needs 36 points. He’s reached that mark in nine of his 43 games this season, so he could probably achieve it in just one. Also Read: Phoenix Suns President Jason Rowley Resigns Following Workplace Allegations
Is Anthony Davis playing against Oklahoma City Thunder
He may or may not play tonight, just like for the majority of his time with the Lakers. He is listed as “likely” on the Lakers’ injury list with right foot pain, and his status will be determined at game time.
That shouldn’t come as a surprise as the Lakers must assess the player prior to every game and it would be preferable for them to keep him on the injured list than have to pay sanctions to the NBA if he were to sit out the game.
