After struggling in his NBA Summer League debut, Bronny James, the youngest son of Lebron James, has just been hit with bad news.

Bronny James, the 55th pick in the NBA draft, has “trace swelling” in his left knee.

The injury of Bronny James kept him off the floor in the Lakers summer league game against the Golden State Warriors.

In his Summer League debut, Bronny James scored 4 points while shooting 2-9 from the the floor in the Lakers loss against the Sacramento Kings.

Here’s what Fox News reported:

After struggling in his Summer League debut, Los Angeles Lakers second-round pick Bronny James didn’t suit up for the team’s next game due to knee swelling.

Lakers reporter Mike Trudell posted on X that James is dealing with “trace swelling” in his left knee, and he was held out of the back-to-back against the Golden State Warriors for precautionary reasons.

Lakers fans shouldn’t wait long to see James back on the court, though, as he’s expected to play in Wednesday’s final California Classic Game against the Miami Heat.

James, who the Lakers took with the No. 55 pick in this year’s NBA Draft, got the start in his first professional action on Saturday night. However, he didn’t have the greatest performance in the 108-94 loss to the Sacramento Kings.

James shot just 2 of 9 for four points with two rebounds and two assists over 22 minutes on the court. He missed all three of his three-point shots, and he couldn’t hit either of his two free throws.


Rookie Bronny James was held out of Sunday’s California Classic summer league game in San Francisco because of trace swelling in his left knee.

Keeping James out of the 92-68 loss to the Golden State Warriors — the second day of a back-to-back — is considered precautionary. James is expected to play in Wednesday’s final Classic game against the Miami Heat.

“The hope is [and] the plan is for him to play the next game here. But that’s all the information we have so far,” Lakers summer league coach Dane Johnson said.

In James’ summer league debut Saturday against the Sacramento Kings, the No. 55 pick in last month’s draft scored four points on 2-of-9 shooting in 22 minutes.
