NBA: LeBron James out vs Warriors due to left groin soreness

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James will sit out the team’s upcoming match-up against the Golden State Warriors because of a left groin soreness.

The team announced the development Wednesday night, adding that James’ fellow star Anthony Davis is considered probable due to a hurting elbow.

James dropped a season-high 40 points on Tuesday in a 118-109 over the New Orleans Pelicans which included 5 triples. He also had 8 rebounds and 6 assists.

The Lakers moved to a Western Conference-best 44-12 record after the contest, padding their lead in the standings over their rivals.

It could be remembered that James injured his groin last season, and it forced him to miss 27 games as Los Angeles did not make the postseason.

This time, the Lakers have a bit of luxury to take time and not rush the 4-time MVP’s return, as winning a championship is still the ultimate prize this season.
