James cleared to play at Indiana as goal chase continues

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James was set to resume his hunt for the NBA scoring record Thursday night in Indiana after being cleared to start.

James entered the day 89 points shy of Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s mark of 38,387.

James, 19 times All-Star, had been listed as questionable due to a sore left ankle. Coach Darvin Ham told reporters around 90 minutes before the whistleblower that James had to go through pre-match warm-ups before the team made a decision on his player status.

About an hour later, the Lakers announced that James, 38, had been cleared.

Some people thought the Lakers might stop James a game or two on their five-game trip so he could break the home record. Los Angeles returns home from a game in New Orleans on Saturday and hosts Oklahoma City on Tuesday and Milwaukee next Thursday.

Pacers point guard Tyrese Haliburton will also be available against the Lakers. The NBA assists leader has missed 10 games due to left knee and left elbow injuries.
