LeBron James reportedly will not face suspension for breaching protocols

LeBron James

LeBron James violated the NBA’s health and safety protocols last week, but will not face a playoff suspension for doing so.

James attended a promotional event for a tequila brand this week prior to the Lakers’ play-in win over Golden State. The event was attended by other high-profile celebrities such as Drake and Michael B. Jordan, and attendees had to produce proof of either vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test to attend.

Despite this, the league still found that the event violated health and safety protocols. That would open James up to a warning, fine, or even suspension. However, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that there would be no suspension forthcoming.

As long as James isn’t a repeat violator, significant discipline was unlikely. There do not appear to be any doubts about his health for Sunday’s Game 1 — assuming his vision issue has cleared up, that is.
