LeBron James Leaves Game with Groin Injury, Listed as Day-to-Day
The statement win of the season for the Los Angeles Lakers came at a price.
Christmas day seemed like it couldn’t have gone any better for the Lakers who cruised past the Golden State Warriors by a score of 127-101. The 26 point road win took a turn for the worst when Lakers’ superstar LeBron James left the game mid-way through the third game after hearing something “pop” in his left leg.
“I take a lot of pride in [staying healthy], so that is why it pissed me off not being able to go back into the game,” James said. “It’s more than anything being available to my teammates, to my coaching staff — that is something I take more personal than anything. Hopefully it is not a long thing and I can get back on the floor as soon as possible.”
Dodged a bullet! Sheesh. ?? to the almighty above! #BackInNoTime

Luckily for the Lakers, the MRI on James’ left groin came back clean. The 33-year old is currently listed as day-to-day and has already been ruled out of the Lakers Thursday night tilt against the Sacramento Kings.
The King has been his usual self this season, averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists per game.
