LeBron James (ankle) out Tuesday night for Los Angeles

Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James will not play Tuesday in the team's game against the Dallas Mavericks.

What It Means:

James rolled his ankle very badly on Sunday. After entering the day with a doubtful tag due to a sprained left ankle, the star wing has been ruled out of action versus Luka Doncic and Co. Expect Stanley Johnson to step back into a starting role, and Carmelo Anthony should also see added work.

The Lakers are 6-13 without LeBron James this year, averaging 108.5 points per game versus 112.6 with him.
