LeBron James will be sitting out the game against the lowly Warriors.
LeBron James have continued to be very splendid into his 17th season in the NBA. The 35-year-old NBA superstar has been dominant on the court and is having one of his best seasons when it comes assists. While he isn’t scoring at the same clip he used to, there is no doubt that he currently remains a top-five player in the league. Few nights ago, LeBron James had one of his best performances of the entire season as he dropped 40 points on the New Orleans Pelicans. It was great to see James go off for 40, it seems like he may have worsened an old injury in the process.
Just the previous night, the Los Angeles Lakers made an announcement via their official Twitter account that LeBron is suffering from a sore groin and will sit out their game Thursday night against the Golden State Warriors. Meanwhile, Anthony Davis is experiencing soreness in his elbow although he should be good to go by game time.
LeBron sustained an injury at his groin last season during a Christmas Day game against the Warriors. The injury kept him out of the Lakers lineup for an extended period of time and the team missed the playoffs because of it. So this time, it seems as though the Lakers are carefully taking every precaution and that this is more of a load management situation.
