LeBron James’ knee needs to be checked out. Via ESPN.com:
Lakers star LeBron James flew back to Los Angeles on Saturday for treatment on his ailing left knee and will not be with the team for the end of its six-game road trip against the Hawks on Sunday, according to Lakers coach Frank Vogel.
James underwent an MRI that revealed “general swelling,” Vogel said. Sunday is the third straight game that James, 37, has missed because of the knee.
“As long as the swelling is there, he’s going to be out and we’ll get him back as soon as we can,” Vogel said.
