LeBron James has no plans to sit out games for load management this season.
"If I'm hurt, I don't play. If not, I'm playing," James said after Friday's win by the Los Angeles Lakers over the Miami Heat. "That's what has always been my motto."
The topic of load management has been rampant across the NBA due to Kawhi Leonard sitting out back-to-back games so far this season.
"LeBron's healthy, LeBron'll play. That's all I'll talk about," James said. "I don't talk about nobody else but me."
The Lakers have internally discussed how to find time to rest James.
"Talk to my coaches," James said. "You know how many times me and T-Lue [Tyronn Lue] got into it in Cleveland when he wanted to sit me and I wanted to play.
"I'm healthy, I play. I probably got a good 45 years to not play basketball."
