The Los Angeles Lakers have a strong roster this season. Head coach Darvin Ham was happy with his compactible team. Yes, the Lakers did lose some games, but they have great chemistry. NBA analysts were worried about the long injury report early in the season, but the situation wasn’t that serious. LeBron James’ calf injury pushed the panic button once again. According to several sources, the four-time NBA champion may sit out In-Season Tournament against the Phoenix Suns.

LeBron may miss time due to a calf injury, Lakers to change the game plan
Should fans be worried? The Lakers hold the best record in the West Group A bracket in the In-Season Tournament. They have yet to lose a game. However, if LeBron and other Lakers players sit out the game, Phoenix could emerge as a winner.
The Lakers lost games in the regular season and their opponents have a better record at this point. They have a 12-8 record and adding another win to the chart could be a big deal for the organization. It won’t be that easy though. Several Suns players deal with injuries and Bradley Beal has yet to see any action. He may be out, but his teammates are doing a good job to keep wins flowing. Kevin Durant delivers a monster performance each night. Devin Booker delivers strong performance as well. These two are ranked in the top 15 in league scoring.
Losing LeBron to an injury would be a big blow for the team. If he misses the game, his teammates will have to elevate their performance. Davis looks good and he could take the leading role on the floor once again. Austin Reaves is expected to have a good performance as usual.
LeBron is the greatest to play the game and he will try to avoid losing time due to this calf injury.
