James took to Twitter to express his relief over the diagnosis:
James suffered the injury during the third quarter and didn’t return to the game. The team announced he strained his left groin after examining him in the locker room.
“With me with injuries, I am never too concerned about them,” James told reporters after the Lakers’ 127-101 win. “I was able to walk off on my own power. I felt a pop and see if I could stretch it a few times and see if it will relieve, but it didn’t.”
The Lakers will play three games in four days starting Thursday when they travel to Golden 1 Center to take on the Sacramento Kings.
James leads the Lakers with 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 34 games.
