LeBron James left Tuesday's game against the Warriors midway through the third quarter with a strained left groin and was listed as questionable to return. After slipping under the Warriors basket at the 7:51 mark of the third trying for a loose ball, the Lakers star grabbed at his left groin in pain.
He was told to stretch it out and awkwardly walked toward the Lakers bench trying to loosen up before leaving on his own though gingerly out the tunnel for the locker room, finishing with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and five assists.
Fortunately, the injury appears to be minor after initial scans.
Through 33 games, LeBron has been averaging 27.6 points per game on 51.8% shooting. Obviously, he has been the main reason for the team's successful season. And, thankfully, he should continue to be fine going forward.
