Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is taking no days off.

Despite reportedly being under the weather, the four-time MVP is expected to play versus the New York Knicks Tuesday.

So far this season, James has played in 35 of the Lakers’ 36 total games. He’s done all that despite being 35 years old and dealing with a number of slight injuries.

Along the way, he’s averaged 24.9 points, 11.0 assists, 7.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game this season.

James is truly changing the game when it comes to an NBA player extending his prime.

For the Lakers, Tuesday’s game marks an opportunity to extend their hold on the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.

They’re currently enjoying a five-game winning streak and are a whopping four games up in the standings compared to the No. 2 seeded Denver Nuggets.

With James ready to go, it seems quite likely that the Lakers will extend their winning streak against the 10-26 Knicks.
