Los Angeles Lakers star forward LeBron James won’t suit up Saturday night for the team’s road game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, thanks to a cold.

Shams Charania of The Athletic broke the news.

James is a gamer and plays whenever he possibly can, even banged up at times. So, if he’s being ruled out you have to know he’s feeling miserable.

In 37 games played this season, the 35-year-old superstar has averaged 25.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, 10.7 assists, and 1.3 steals per game.
