LeBron James, who scored 30 points, came out with a groin injury in the Lakers’ loss to the Clippers on Wednesday.
Concern for LeBron James on the side of the Lakers. The superstar couldn’t finish the game against the Clippers on Wednesday, lost 114-101 by the Violet and Or. James came out almost six minutes from the end, having scored 30 points, grabbed 8 rebounds and delivered 5 assists in 32 minutes, due to a groin injury, suffered after contact with Paul George in the racket.
“I feel good, apart from the injury. We will do exams tomorrow and we will see. I didn’t do anything strenuous on this action. When I landed I felt a little spasm or tension in my groin. Immediately I asked out »said LeBron James at a press conference, specifying that this pain in the groin was not as intense as that suffered at Christmas 2018, which had forced him to miss 17 games.
LeBron James 1076 points off record
“We will let him see our medical staff first. It’s just a lot of adversity. He gave his all to be there for us and play at a high level. He was doing really, really well tonight. But this is the NBA, guys. You have to be ready for anything, we’ll see what the results are once it’s been evaluated and we’ll be ready to move on.”said coach Darvin Ham, who would have done well without an injury to his star. The Lakers have won only two of their first eleven games of the season, and an absence, even for a few games, of LeBron James, will not help their situation.
The Lakers will play four home games (Sacramento, Brooklyn, Detroit, San Antonio) to try to move up the standings, they who are currently second to last in the West. At this rate, the only highlight of the franchise season will be Kareem Abdul-Jabar’s regular points record, which LeBron James must beat in the coming months. The former Cleveland and Miami player is now 1,076 points off the record, which he could break in 45 games if he continues to average 24 points per game. But for that, it will not be necessary to be injured too long.
