Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron James won’t add to his NBA points record on Thursday night.

The Los Angeles Lakers ruled out the recently crowned scoring king for the game against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks with left ankle soreness.

The team is scheduled to honor James in a pregame ceremony at Arena.

James matched his age with 38 points in Tuesday’s loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder to move past Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points) for the No. 1 spot on the career scoring list. James has 38,390 points.

The 19-time All-Star is averaging 30.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and 7.0 assists in 44 games this season.
