The Lakers star grabbed at his left groin after slipping under the Warriors basket at the 7:51 mark of the third trying for a loose ball. He said he has had the injury before but “not in a long time.” James has not missed a game this season.
“It’s pretty rare for me to have an injury, period,” he said. “It happens and we’ve got a great medical staff here, I’ve got a great trainer.”
Los Angeles (20-14) owns the fourth-best record in the Western Conference.
