“I can’t and won’t miss the postseason again because of my career! This HURTS,” he tweeted at the time.
The Lakers missed the playoffs last year, just two years away from winning the NBA Finals. Last season, they lost in the first round to the Phoenix Suns. They also missed the playoffs in James’ first season with LA.
The Lakers are without big man Anthony Davis, who suffered a stress injury to his foot earlier this month. He is out indefinitely, according to the team.

After starting the season 2-12, the Lakers have won 11 of 15 but have lost four in a row since Davis was injured.
James has missed the playoffs just four times in his NBA career: his first two seasons (2003-04 and 2004-05) and the two seasons he’s missed with the Lakers.
