Get this one, sit Lebron in the b2b with Portland. Not ideal but we have to be smart.

Too early in the season to start sitting James or any player.

Keeping him under 30 mpg should be adequate this early in the season.

That might be hard with Schroeder and Trezz. The lakers during lebron sitting is finally watchable again.(never happened last season until playoff rondo showed up)

Lebron is not gonna sit, but I’m expecting a lot more rest in that T-Wolves game assuming we control that game the way we should. Like a 26-28 minute game for Lebron while he may play bigger minutes against the Blazers.

Rather LeBron sit in this game to heal any lingering issues with the ankle instead of skipping the game on Monday. AD, Schroder, and Trez can handle the wolves.

This. Hopefully, a few minutes less than 26 for LeBron (assuming that the Lakers are in control like they should be).

We literally won't need Lebron at all against half of the teams out there. Looks like it's finally gonna be Lakers vs Clippers for all the marbles this year.

LeBron is also day-to-day but is listed as "probable" rather than "questionable."

“Questionable” is a step up from the ubiquitous “probable”. It’s probably how they’re going to work some “load management“ in there.

Yup. Already played 2 primetime games to start the year. So they get a ‘rest’ here and there.

So this minny team isn’t that bad fellas

Watched their game against Utah and they have some pieces, including their #1 pick who was really showing some flashes

This will be a tough game, much tougher than I thought at first glance

Why aren’t D’Angelo, Towns, and the #1 overall pick a formidable trio?

I'd honestly prefer to rest Bron rather than AD. Schroder, Harrell and AD + our supporting cast are more than enough to keep up with Towns/DLo/Edwards, but I'm not sure Trezz and Marc will be able to guard KAT

Trezz is gonna eat on offense tomorrow though I reckon

I guess they may rest AD today and LeBron tomorrow.

I haven't watched them yet this year, but, if they are still not playing defense, our squad is gonna drop 160 on them.

KAT said his wrist hurts and that he'll have further testing. Wouldn't say what his current diagnosis is but said "Stay positive. Told my family how the x-rays went and we'll go from there."
Doesn't sound great.
