Report: The Lakers Will Be Resting LeBron James Down The Stretch

It seems that the Los Angeles Lakers are officially starting to to give up hope for their season and their chances to make the NBA playoffs.

According to Chris Haynes, the team is expected to limit LeBron to 28-32 minutes per game, while also allowing him to sit out either end of the team’s three remaining back-to-backs.

The news comes after Rajon Rondo’s display of discontent with the Lakers in which he chose to sit courtside rather than on the bench with his teammates in the final minutes of the Lakers’ blowout loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Things have not gone right for the Lakers this year. The Lakers are currently sitting at 30-35 and are 2-8 in their last 10 games and are far away from the last playoff spot heading into the stretch run of the season.

This is most likely the right move for the Lakers but it doesn’t make it any less sad to see LeBron and The Lakers missing the playoffs this season.
