James was listed as questionable entering Tuesday night with an abdomen injury. He previously missed eight consecutive games earlier this month due to an abdominal strain

The 36-year-old has struggled for a consistent run of games this season, missing 11 of the Lakers’ 22 games so far due to injury and a suspension. In those 11 games, he is averaging 25.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game.

The Lakers hold a 7-4 record with LeBron in the lineup and just 4-7 without him. They currently sit at 11-11 on the season, good for seventh in the Western Conference after an up-and-down start to the season.
