Lakers coach Frank Vogel declined to give an update on the status of James, skirting questions about his use when he comes back and whether that could be before the regular season ends.
“He and the medical team will tell me when he’s ready,” Vogel said. “When he’s ready to play, he’ll play.”The four-time NBA MVP’s averages lead Los Angeles in scoring (25.4), assists (7.9) and minutes (33.9) this season.
“He’s still out indefinitely,” Vogel said. “That’s all I’ve got for you.”
