Los Angeles Lakers' star player LeBron James missed the team's first practice after the All-Star break, but assistant coach Darvin Ham clarified that it was not due to the finger injury he sustained during the All-Star game.

Ham explained that LeBron was given an extra day off to manage his workload and provide some much-needed rest. The finger injury is not a concern.

LeBron is still dealing with soreness in his left foot/ankle, which is a wear-and-tear issue expected to persist for the remainder of the season.

In the 19th All-Star Game, he suffered a hand injury in the second quarter while attempting a chasedown block on Pascal Siakam.

He was ruled out at halftime with a "right hand contusion."

LeBron joked that he wanted to get one defensive stop in the game and ended up injuring his finger while trying to make a chasedown block.

However, he stated that it was not a significant concern and that he only took the rest of the night off for precautionary reasons.

The Lakers' season will resume on Thursday against the Golden State Warriors at Crypto.com Arena, and LeBron is expected to start.
