James was injured Sunday against Memphis and will be held out with the hope he can return for Wednesday’s game at Oklahoma City.
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James missed Wednesday’s road game against the Spurs with a sore right ankle.
Despite his absence, the Lakers rode Anthony Davis (35 points, 17 rebounds) and Russell Westbrook (33 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists) to edge the Spurs 125-121 in overtime.
James was initially injured in the first half of Sunday’s victory over Memphis when Grizzlies guard Desmond Bane was knocked down and fell into his right leg.
James finished the game, scoring 19 points on 7-for-19 shooting with six rebounds and six assists in 40 minutes as the Lakers (1-2) earned their first victory of the season.
The Lakers continue their short road swing Wednesday at Oklahoma City before returning home to face Cleveland on Friday.
James, 36, is averaging 26 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists through three games.
