An MRI LeBron James underwent Wednesday confirmed the superstar suffered a strained left groin in the third quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers' 127-101 win over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, the team announced. James will be listed as day to day.
The Lakers announced that James won't travel with the team for Thursday's game in Sacramento against the Kings. The team is reportedly expecting to be without James for at least a few games, according to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes.
James hasn't sat out a regular-season game since missing the final contest of the 2016-17 campaign. In fact, he has played 94.3 percent of 1,248 possible regular-season games since entering the NBA as the No. 1 pick in 2003.
The four-time MVP is averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 7.1 assists, and 1.3 steals per game this season despite playing a career low in minutes (34.6 per game).
