James’ injury trigger unknown

 

James looked fine on Sunday while helping lead the Lakers to win against the Los Angeles Clippers. He produced a dangerous duo last weekend along with Anthony Davis.
Together they got the better of Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee bucks and Kawhi Leonard’s Los Angeles Clippers. They did this whilst giving good stats.
After the Clippers game, however, LeBron had opened up about how the groin injury affected him.
“The injury [last season] hurt me a lot physically and mentally”, the veteran said.
“I put a lot of work into my game this offseason, a lot of work into my rehabbing with my groin, getting back to full strength,”
However, he did miss a game a couple of weeks back due to the same groin issue. Rajon Rondo made a spot start in that situation. He scored 12 points with 4 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals in 25.8 minutes. Anthony Davis would have to step up  if James is unavailable.
James has had groin injuries before.
“We’re obviously not going to rush him back,” head coach Luke Walton after the injury first occurred.

 That groin injury forced James to miss 17 consecutive games. The Lakers went 6-11 during that stretch and fell out of the playoff picture out West.

James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 10.6 assists in this season. He’s shooting 49.7 per cent from the field, 34.7 per cent from beyond the arc and 70.4 per cent from the free-throw line.

James put up 29.0 points, 10.3 assists and 7.3 rebounds last week. He won yet another Player of the Week Award.
