LeBron James will be re-evaluated by Lakers in a week

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James remains sidelined and will not travel with the Los Angeles Lakers on their two-game trip to face the Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks.

Coach Luke Walton lit a fire under two underperforming Lakers on Sunday after his gutted team dropped its fifth in six games without LeBron James.

Ball's numbers have actually decreased in his sophomore season, and he is now posting a line of 9.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, five assists, and 1.4 steals per game.

Lakers update: Since LeBron James injured his groin against the Warriors on Christmas Day, the Lakers have lost four of five, with their lone win coming against the Kings. At some point, we need more passion, we need more fight.

However, despite a tight playoff race in the Western Conference and the urgency to win now, the Lakers are doing the smart thing by not rushing James' return to the court, as Trevor Lane explains on the latest LN News Feed.

"They're trying, but they're young", Walton said.

The eight total consecutive games that James is due to miss with the Lakers will tie his career high.

Brandon Ingram led the Lakers in scoring with 29 points, while Lonzo Ball chipped in with 21 and Josh Hart 14.

The Lakers badly needed a strong response after last night's game and finally offered one on Monday. The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 112.3 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 44.6 percent shooting.

Barea could only laugh when told he led the team with three assists, saying, "You can't win the game like that".

Friday's game will mark the fifth that James has missed.

Dallas wrapped up its four-game road trip with back-to-back losses after a 106-100 setback at Philadelphia on Saturday. Luka Doncic is averaging 19.4 points and 4.9 assists while Harrison Barnes is averaging 18.2 points and 4.2 rebounds. "So, they know that we need them, and they'll get it going for us".
