Los Angeles Lakers’ second-round pick Bronny James missed the team’s Summer League game against the Golden State Warriors due to knee swelling. Lakers reporter Mike Trudell shared that James is dealing with “trace swelling” in his left knee and was held out of the game as a precaution. However, fans can expect to see James back in action for Wednesday’s final California Classic Game against the Miami Heat.

In his Summer League debut, James struggled to find his footing on the court. He shot just 2 of 9 for four points, with two rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes of play. Despite collecting his first steal of the Summer League, he posted a minus-15 while on the floor. The Lakers’ first-round pick, Dalton Knecht, also faced challenges, shooting 3 of 12 from the field.

On a more positive note, forward Blake Hinson came off the bench and contributed significantly with 17 points, sinking 5 of 7 three-pointers and hitting both of his free throws. These games serve as a valuable learning experience for the young players, including James, who is the son of NBA superstar LeBron James.

James has faced setbacks in the past, including a cardiac arrest during a workout with his college team, which led to surgery to repair a congenital heart defect. Despite the doubts surrounding his draft selection, James is determined to prove himself on the court and showcase his skills.

As James continues to develop as a player, he may spend a significant amount of time in the G League with the South Bay Lakers, according to ESPN. This journey is essential for his growth and improvement as a professional basketball player.

While James focuses on his recovery and development, his father, LeBron James, is preparing for the Paris Olympics with Team USA. The younger James is eager to make a name for himself in the basketball world and overcome any obstacles that come his way.
