MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- LeBron James is expected to be available Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies after sitting out the Los Angeles Lakers' 128-124 come-from-behind win in double overtime Tuesday against the Milwaukee Bucks, sources told ESPN.

James was sidelined in Milwaukee because of left ankle soreness, something that he has been playing through for several months.

The Grizzlies matchup is the second leg of Los Angeles' six-game road trip that continues against Indiana, Brooklyn, Toronto and Washington.

The Lakers (40-32) are currently No. 9 in the Western Conference standings with 10 games remaining.
