LeBron James (ankle) ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against Houston
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Houston Rockets.
James remains sidelined for the second game of Los Angeles' back-to-back with an ankle sprain. Expect Talen Horton-Tucker to play an increased role in a favorable matchup against a Houston unit ranked 28th in defensive efficiency.
According to Rotogrinders' Court IQ in 863.6 minutes this season with James off the floor, Horton-Tucker is averaging 0.97 FanDuel points and 0.40 field goal attempts per minute.
