Knicks vs. Lakers Odds
|Time||10 p.m. ET|
LeBron James’ return to the court will have to wait at least one more games as the King’s injured ankle will keep him out of tonight’s matchup with the New York Knicks.
There was initially some optimism that LeBron would be able to play, but Lakers fans will have to wait a bit longer for the return of their star.
This has also had an effect on Knicks vs. Lakers odds as well.
LeBron James Injury Impact
With the potential of James returning to action, the Knicks vs. Lakers spread sat at Los Angeles -5.5.
However, that number has adjusted to Lakers -3 at PointsBet on the news that LeBron will not be in action tonight.
That this doesn’t mean that LeBron is worth just two points to the spread as oddsmakers were very much pricing the chances that he wouldn’t play into the original 5.5-point spread.
The Knicks vs. Lakers over/under has also dropped from 213.5 to 212.5 due to LeBron’s absence.
