LeBron James was isolated by the NBA's covid-19 health and safety protocols and, as a result, missed Tuesday's game against the Sacramento Kings, a team spokesperson confirmed to CNN.


It is unclear if James had tested positive for COVID-19 or if he had been in close contact with someone who had.

Lakers coach Frank Vogel said the team arranged transportation for James to return safely to Los Angeles.

"Obviously, it's a huge loss," Vogel said Tuesday before the game in Sacramento.

"He is disappointing. We just want the best for him right now."

In September, James said he received the vaccine despite being skeptical at first.

"Everyone has their own choice to do what they think is right for themselves and their family and things of that nature," James told reporters in late September.

"I know I was very skeptical about all this. But after doing my research and things of that nature, I felt that it was more suitable not only for me, but also for my family and my friends. So I decided to do it."

It is unclear how long James will remain on the sidelines.

The Lakers, however, overcame his absence to defeat the Kings 117-92.

James has only competed in half of his team's 22 games this season after being sidelined with an abdominal injury and serving a one-game suspension.

The superstar was also fined $ 15,000 by the league after he made "an obscene gesture on the field of play" in Thursday's overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers.

James isn't the only player affected by NBA protocols.

Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid returned to the court Saturday night after being forced to miss nine games due to a positive COVID-19 result.
