LeBron James gets favorable news on groin injury

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James will be listed as day-to-day with a groin strain after having an MRI which came up clean, the team announced on Wednesday.

The Los Angeles Lakers' supertar is now listed as "day-to-day" after suffering a groin injury in the Lakers' Christmas Day win against the Golden State Warriors. James told ESPN's Dave McMenamin after the game that "the good thing is the muscle is intact".

The Los Angeles Lakers will have to get used to life without LeBron James. James said he "overextended" the injury further when he went back on defense right after that.

In the crowded West, every night matters, and the Lakers will need to string together some wins with James out if they want to be in the playoffs in April.

LaGuardia Airport has been temporarily closed due to a power outage resulting from the transformer explosion, officials said. Public transportation is running, but the 7 train is experiencing delays, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Twitter.

James has never had this severe of a groin injury in the past. "I was able to walk off on my own power". It's a shame the Lakers couldn't hold onto their big fourth quarter lead.

James, who left the Lakers' victory over Golden State on Tuesday with the groin injury, had played 116 consecutive regular-season games; that number jumps to 156 when postseason games are included. However, the Kings went on a insane run and tied the game at 112 when Kyle Kuzma fouled Kings forward Justin Jackson on a 3-point attempt.

James is averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 7.1 assists this season, his 16th in the National Basketball Association and first with the Lakers. "It's more than anything being available to my teammates, to my coaching staff - that is something I take more personal than anything".
