LeBron James' first season as a Los Angeles Laker hasn't gone as planned with the team already out of playoff contention

Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Mike Muscala (leg) is available to play Friday versus the Charlotte Hornets.

Charlotte will now kick off a back-to-back road set against the Golden State Warriors, which begins on Sunday March 31, at 8:30 p.m. ET in Oakland, CA.

Kemba Walker scored 24 points to lead the Hornets, who dropped two games behind the Miami Heat for eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Rajon Rondo interested in re-signing with Los Angeles, feels he can play a part in turning around the Lakers' fortunes next season.

Bara district is located 120 kilometres south of the capital, Kathmandu , and borders India's eastern state of Bihar. The National Emergency Operation Centre said the injured are undergoing treatment at various health facilities.

The Lakers are just 33-42 on the season.

Charlotte Hornets guard Dwayne Bacon (7) drives to the basket in the first quarter against the Los Angeles Laker at Staples Center. Los Angeles will be without Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart who have all been shut down for the remainder of the season. Los Angeles has also struggled on defense, allowing 113.8 points per night.

It makes sense that James is now breaking out the hard stuff, given how this season has gone.

LeBron James (Day To Day - Groin): The Lakers listed James as PROBABLE for Friday's (Mar 29) game against the Hornets. "King James" missed 18 games right after Christmas, and has been sitting out games of late to get some rest. Fortunately, he was finally able to find his rhythm on offense and ultimately finished with a game-high 27 points, while tacking on nine assists and three rebounds in 32 minutes. Jeremy Lamb has averaged 2.2 assists and scored 14.6 points over the last 10 games for Charlotte. The Hornets know that they will eventually have to score points to reach the playoffs.
