The Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, who is fully vaccinated, has been placed in Covid-19 health and safety protocols.

The Lakers head coach Frank Vogel says the team’s thoughts are with James: “It’s a huge loss. It’s disappointing.”

Adds that he thinks that the Lakers are further along in their cohesion than they were when LeBron missed games earlier in the season.
