This news was a relief to Lakers fans, who know that James' health is crucial to their chances of making the playoffs.

As of the All-Star break, the Lakers are two games out of the 10th seed in the Western Conference, with 23 games remaining in their schedule.

The injury occurred when James went to block a layup by Pascal Siakam and his pinky finger got caught on the rim, bending awkwardly.

Despite this, he remained in the game and did not show any signs of discomfort until halftime, when the league announced that he would not return due to the injury.

James tied Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most All-Star appearances in NBA history with his 19th appearance on Sunday, playing a total of 14 minutes and finishing with 13 points, four assists, and one rebound.
