The Los Angeles Lakers will reassess LeBron James’ injured right foot in two weeks, ESPN reported Tuesday.

A timeline for James’ return to the lineup will depend on where the Lakers are in the standings at that point.


James, 38, scored 26 points in the Lakers’ 111-108 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, but he twisted his right foot when he stepped on an opponent’s foot in the third quarter. He was able to finish the game but was clearly still in pain afterward.


The 19-time All-Star is averaging 29.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 47 games this season.

The Lakers head into Tuesday’s game at Memphis in 12th place in the Western Conference with 21 games left.
