Bronny James, the Los Angeles Lakers' rookie point guard, No. 55 overall pick in the 2024 NBA Draft and eldest son of the Lakers' All-Star combo forward, will play for the Lakers' Summer League squad in the finals of the California Classic LA against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night, according to the Lakers' official X-Account.

Bronny James sat out LA's second game, a 92-68 loss to the Golden State Warriors Summer League team on Sunday, because of knee problems.

The action begins at 4 p.m. PT on ESPN2.

The 6-foot-4 James, who moved up to the NBA after just one season with the USC Trojans, will be moved to shooting guard tonight, while former Saint Mary's point guard Tommy Khuse, who now plays with Italian team Derthona Basket, will take over the point guard position. LA's top pick in this year's draft, former Tennessee Volunteers sharpshooter Dalton Knecht (pick No. 17), will be moved to small forward, while former Pepperdine sophomore forward Maxwell Lewis will start at the 4 position and returning two-way center Colin Castleton will man the center at the top.

Los Angeles starts 0-2. In his only California Classic game this season, Bronny James scored just four points on 2-of-9 shooting from the field.
