In the past four seasons, James has missed 21 games due to injury. He missed none last season, eight in the 2016-17 season and six in the 2015-16 season. Without him during those three years, James’ teams have lost every game they’ve played without him. This year, the Lakers are 2-5 without him, hoping to build off what they learned in a trying back-to-back.
