James does not have a serious groin injury, but there is a healing process for him to navigate.

Despite incredible efforts from Kyle Kuzma and Lonzo Ball, the Los Angeles Lakers were unable to defeat the Sacramento Kings and lost, 117-116, on a buzzer-beater by Bogdan Bogdanovic over Tyson Chandler's outstretched arm.

James was injured during the Lakers' 127-101 victory over two-time defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State on Christmas when he slipped while going for a loose ball. That said, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the team is preparing for the four-time NBA MVP to miss multiple games.

"It's one of those things we want to make sure he's healthy before we get him back out there", coach Luke Walton said Thursday. "All that said, we made enough plays to win".

The Lakers were up by 15 points with just over six minutes remaining in the game, but mental mistakes plagued them.

"We are obviously not going to rush him back", Walton said. James has displayed a tremendous capacity throughout his career to avoid extended absences with injury, but sources expected the Lakers and James will be careful not to risk further aggravation of the groin by returning too quickly.
