BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Celtics forward Al Horford will miss Wednesday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers with a possible concussion.

The injury is believed to have occurred in Monday night's game against Atlanta. The Celtics say he showed no symptoms until Wednesday morning, when he entered the NBA's concussion protocol.

Horford has averaged 14.6 points, 9.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists this season, taking on an even bigger role since the injury to Gordon Hayward on opening night. The Celtics have won nine games in a row.

Rumor: Executives expect Lakers to include Brandon Ingram in trade for next star

A big part of this season for the Lakers was figuring out which of their young stars could fit well playing alongside LeBron James. Lonzo Ball took longer to figure it out, but LeBron sees in him a kindred spirit, and the two racked up matching triple-doubles the other night. Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report gets into why - Ingram tends to hold on to the ball longer, be less decisive - and also into the speculation around the league that the Lakers will use Ingram as a key piece of trade bait if that's how they will acquire their next star.

LeBron James was at his sluggish worst: a season-low 13 points on 5-of-16 shooting. ''We're a team that's built on energy and depth,'' James said. A day after he and Lonzo Ball each registered a triple-double in a win at Charlotte, the four-time NBA MVP had six rebounds and three assists and sat out the fourth quarter of a lopsided laugher.
