Los Angeles Lakers forward, LeBron James might be out longer than expected.

Per a Lakers source: LeBron James “could be out until the end of February, or even longer.”

James injured his groin on Christmas Day against the Golden State Warriors. The Lakers won that game 127-101.

But since then, the Lakers dropped five of their next six games, following.

On Thursday, the Lakers released a statement revealing that James has been cleared to “increase on-court functional basketball movements.” It also states that there will be an update provided on Wednesday, January 16.

This means LeBron is out at least through the latter part of next week, but it now seems that timeline could be optimistic.
