After the game, his head coach Darvin Ham indicated that James’ minutes would likely remain at that number going forward, although it could depend on how the season goes.
If the Lakers stick with this plan, it would be the lowest number of minutes James averages in his entire career.
With James struggling with injuries in recent years, the reduced playing time could be a way to protect him both this season and in subsequent seasons.
James has long talked about wanting to play in the NBA with his eldest son, Bronny James, and that seems more possible with each passing year.
Bronny is currently a freshman at USC and will be eligible for the NBA next season.
However, James may now be thinking about expanding his career even further to include playing with his younger son Bryce, according to recent comments from his wife Savannah in a Beats ad campaign.
