The Los Angeles Lakers will not have veteran superstar LeBron James in the starting lineup for their Tuesday night road game against the New York Knicks.

James was involved in a heated scuffle with Detroit Pistons rookie Isaiah Stewart on Sunday night and was assessed a one-game suspension on Monday. The veteran has also been dealing with injuries during the first month of the 2020-21 campaign.

The Lakers, who enter the game against the 9-8 Knicks with a 9-9 mark on the season, will be looking to win their second game in a row after their 121-116 victory over the Pistons.

Following their game against the Knicks, the Lakers will quickly head to Indianapolis, where a game on Wednesday night against the Indiana Pacers is on tap.
