LOS ANGELES (LifeSiteNews) — The NBA’s health and safety protocols have prohibited fully vaccinated basketball star LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers from playing in last night’s game against the Sacramento Kings. Under NBA regulations, if a fully vaccinated player is forced to sit out any games, it is likely that he has tested positive for COVID-19 or had an inconclusive result.

James was outspoken about his reluctance to take the abortion-tainted jab in September, but said he ultimately made the decision to do so. If he did indeed test positive, he will likely not play any games for at least 10 days, unless he produces two negative PCR tests in a 24-hour time period.

His team has not officially commented on whether he is experiencing any symptoms. His teammate Anthony Davis said that James showed none, but didn’t explicitly confirm a positive COVID test.

The news of James’ potential breakthrough infection comes as the NBA has recommended booster shots for players, coaches, and officials.

In a memo obtained by the Associated Press, the league told its teams that there have been 34 documented cases in which a fully vaccinated player, coach or staffer tested positive for COVID.

Coronavirus vaccine trials have never produced evidence that the vaccines stop infection or transmission. They do not even claim to reduce hospitalization, but the measurement of success is in preventing severe symptoms of COVID-19. Moreover, there is strong evidence that the “vaccinated” are just as likely to carry and transmit the virus as the unvaccinated.

As COVID cases have surged in heavily vaccinated countries like Israel, the U.K., and the U.S., including among vaccinated individuals, hopes that vaccination would prevent infection or halt transmission have dwindled.
