How much does LeBron James matter to the Lakers?

Let Tom Haberstroh of NBC Sports give you the numbers:

That should make the Utah Jazz feel good about their chances tonight because LeBron is out, missing the second night of a back-to-back.

Just as a reminder, also out are Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and Josh Hart. Meanwhile, Reggie Bullock, Tyson Chandler, and Mike Muscala are all questionable.

Be prepared. If you wear a Lakers’ jersey to the game tonight at Vivint Smart Home Arena, and you’re sitting within three rows of the court, Luke Walton may turn point to you, and try to put you in the. The Lakers need players.
